  • 4 salmon fillets
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 8 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Baking paper


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F).
  2. Place a large sheet of baking paper on a baking tray. It should be large enough to create a pouch to enclose the salmon.
  3. Season the salmon fillets with salt and black pepper to your liking.
  4. Lay two sprigs of fresh rosemary and four sprigs of fresh thyme on the baking paper. These will serve as a fragrant bed for the salmon.
  5. Place a lemon slice on top of the herbs.
  6. Lay a salmon fillet on each lemon slice.
  7. Sprinkle minced garlic evenly over the salmon fillets.
  8. Drizzle each salmon fillet with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  9. Place another lemon slice on top of each salmon.
  10. Add the remaining herbs on top.
  11. Carefully fold the baking paper over the salmon fillets, creating a pouch. Secure the edges by folding them several times, ensuring the pouch is well-sealed.
  12. Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 13-17 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon fillets. The salmon should be easily flake with a fork when done.
  13. Carefully open the pouch (watch out for hot steam) and transfer the salmon fillets to serving plates.
  14. Garnish with extra fresh herbs and lemon slices if desired.
