Baked Salmon

1 3 lb whole salmon; (3 to 4)
2 tb Butter
4 sl Lemon
Salt and pepper to taste


Lay salmon on sheet of tinfoil, shiny side up.

If needed, crimp 2 sheets together.

Dot salmon with butter, put butter, lemons, salt and pepper inside body.

(With steaks or pieces, lay lemon slices on top, salt and pepper to taste.)

Fold foil tightly over contents, crimp ends to make airtight seal.

Place in shallow metal pan or ovenproof dish.

Add boiling water to cover bottom of pan, place in oven at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

When fish cooking time is up, open foil to check doneness.

For larger fish, check by pressing fork into flesh near backbone.

If flesh flakes and falls away, it's done; if not, cook a little longer.

Place on plate, garnish with paprika, sprigs of parsley, fresh lemon slices.
