Simple ingredients yield delicious results in this easy Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon recipe, which can be made in 30 minutes or less! Salmon fillets are drizzled with a citrusy garlic butter, topped with fresh lemon slices, wrapped in a foil packet, and oven-baked until tender and flaky.
Preheat the oven to 375°. Whisk melted butter, garlic, basil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl.Lay a large piece of foil on a baking sheet, and a slightly smaller piece of parchment paper on top.
Bake for 14-16 minutes. Open the foil, pour remaining lemon-basil sauce over fillets, and return to oven under a High broil for 5-7 minutes. Once salmon starts to brown, remove and serve immediately. Enjoy!
