Instructions
 

  • Move the oven rack to the bottom position.
  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Layout a piece of parchment paper.
  • Place salmon on parchment paper, in the center, with the skin side facing down.
  • Season salmon with salt and black pepper.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut 2 slits – 3 inches long into the salmon.
  • Push chopped basil in the slits.
  • Spray the salmon with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place lemon slices on top of the salmon.
  • Fold the ends of the parchment over the salmon in multiple layers to completely cover and seal in the salmon.
  • Place parchment covered salmon on baking sheet.
  • In preheated oven, on the lowered rack, bake approximately 20 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque, pink, it will flake easily with a fork, and an instant-read thermometer reads a minimum of 145° F.

To Serve

  • Carefully cut open the parchment paper (steam will release, so be careful not to burn your hands).
  • Remove lemon slices and discard.
