I am always trying to figure out ways to eat healthier, and fish is a great way to do just that. Salmon is a super easy, healthy, and delicious which is why you see it so often on menus. My problem with cooking fish at home is it stinks up my whole kitchen and cooking it can be really messy! The good news is I have found a trick that not only keeps your home from smelling like fish for three days, it has a super easy clean up process!
My trick is using Reynolds Oven Bags when I cook my fish, which seals in both the flavor and the smell! Then when you are done with the fish you just throw the whole bag away and voila! A clean kitchen with almost no scrubbing! Genius.
I thought this was a perfect recipe to show in video form because you can see with your own eyes how easy this technique is and how quickly you can get a healthy and flavorful meal on the table.
- 1 Salmon fillet (this can be of various weight according to how many people you are serving)
- 1-2 lemons sliced thin
- ½ onion sliced thin
- 1 small fennel bulb sliced thin
- Fresh dill *optional
- olive oil
- Make sure your salmon is clean and dry, and then add a pinch of salt and pepper to both sides.
- In a bowl, toss together the onions, lemons, and fennel. Open up a Reynolds Oven Bag and place ½ of the vegetable mixture on the bottom of the bag. Place the fish skin side down on top of the veggies. Then add the fresh dill. Finally add the rest of the mixture on top. Sprinkle some olive oil, salt, and pepper and then place on a cooking pan. Tie the ends of the bag to seal and cook at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes. Check to make sure the salmon is done.
