Lemon Baked Salmon

This recipe comes from my sister Rhoda. If you are looking for a very healthy delicious salmon recipe this is it. My husband enjoys fishing the river near our place, so we usually have salmon in the freezer. In the winter months I like to have the frozen fillets ready to pull out and bake. For those of you who don't have a fisherman in the family, Costco usually has fresh salmon that is perfect for this recipe. The recipe I will post is for half of a whole filleted salmon.

1/2 salmon

2 lemons sliced very thin

1 small onion sliced very thin

seasoning salt (approx 1 tbsp)

Greek seasoning (approx 1 1/2 tbsp)

Place salmon on a foil covered baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with seasoning salt.

Lay lemon slices all the way down down the salmon over lapping them. You can make two rows or one down the centre. On top of the lemons lay the onions in the same fashion. Most of the salmon should be covered.

Wrap the foil up and over the salmon making a tight seal.

Bake in 400 oven for 30 minutes. Remove salmon along with the lemons and onions to a serving platter. Spinkle with Greek seasoning to your liking. The lemon peels become very tender and the flavor is mellow, so make sure you eat the peel too.

For an additional garnish after baking mix 1 tsp dill with 1 cup of crumbled Feta cheese and sprinkle over entire salmon.
