Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Tear a large piece of foil that can wrap the salmon fillet and leave space for steam. Place salmon in center of foil and top with salt, pepper, rosemary and lemon slices. Pull up foil edges and crimp together, making a closed packet.

Step 3

Place salmon on sheet pan and bake 15-20 minutes or until preferred doneness (safe internal temp 145°F.) Carefully remove salmon from oven and open foil, being careful of the steam. Divide salmon into two pieces and finish with parsley, and lemon zest and juice. Enjoy, refrigerating any leftovers.
