Salmon Baked in Foil

One of our favorite summertime dinners is fish baked in foil. Last night we had salmon with fresh herbs from our garden. Remember, I say OURS very loosely. I’m a garden appreciator, a garden encourager, but not a garden grower.

These were pretty simple. Fish, olive oil, a pat of butter, garlic, orange slices and fresh herbs all wrapped in a foil packet and baked for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees. We like our salmon pretty well done, but to each his own. We served these with mashed potatoes and turnips straight from the garden. We are trying to make turnips cool again. I’m pretty sure that turnips were once cool.

On a side note: I like to say Tin Foil because it drives Nathan crazy. I also like to say Tuna Fish. I love redundancy. Nathan hates and deplores it and I think I am completely finished with this post.
