  • 4 Salmon fillets
  • 3 Medium Potatoes
  • 3 Courgettes (or 2 big ones)
  • 20 g Fresh thyme
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Peeled and crushed
  • 1 Lemon Sliced
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 180c.

  2. Boil or microwave your potatoes (in their skins) for about 10 minutes to just soften.

  3. Drain your potatoes and slice your potatoes and courgettes into approx 0.5 cm slices (or use a mandolin if you have one).

  4. Now cut a piece of foil that is big enough to create a parcel to hold your food, You need enough excess to wrap across the top of the ingredients. 

  5. Spray of brush the foil with a little olive oil. Arrange the slices of partially cooked potato on the foil, over lapping them to  fill the dish. Lay slices of courgette on top. 

  6. Once all of the courgette has been used up place the four salmon fillets on top, followed by a slice of lemon on each.  Sprinkle with the fresh thyme, crushed garlic and a drizzle of oil.

  7. Season with salt and pepper.

  8. Wrap the foil over the top of the salmon.  Cook for 20 minutes.

Recipe Notes

  1. This is a really good recipe to scale down- if you want to cook for less people just reduce the recipe accordingly, it's the perfect supper for nights on your own. 
  2. Be sure not to overcook the salmon, it shouldn't have that tell tale white residue coming from it. If you notice this on the fish, remove from the oven straight away.
