This was such a busy week for us because we were trying to get ready for our weekend in Montreal. As you may know we live in Toronto, but my husband’s family lives in Montreal. So, we are always coming here to spend some quality time with them. It’s very good to meet them and see Thomas playing with his grandparents and cousins.

And although his cousins are much older than Tomtom (Julia is 7 and Dominic is 11 years old), they get along so well. Julia treats Thomas like a doll. She wants to give him food, to give his bath and put on his clothes. It’s so funny. On the other hand, my nephew Dominic likes to play with Tomtom with blocks and stacking toys.

As I was saying before, my week was busy getting ready for the trip and for this reason I cooked all week long easy and quick meals for dinner just like this Spicy Butter Salmon in Foil. When I have no time for cooking I think “should I order something or make my salmon in foil or my quick easy broiled salmon recipe”? And my answer is always “make one of your salmon recipes”. Why? Because it’s going to be fresher and healthier than any other food I can possibly order. Also it’s so easy and quick to make any of my salmon recipes that it’s not even worth ordering a pizza instead.

I love cooking salmon in aluminum foil because it allows the fish to stay moist. When you fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, it keeps moisture inside of the foil, preventing the salmon from drying out. Also this technique is great if you want to cook with different spices on your salmon. The other reason why I love salmon in foil is because it makes clean up a breeze. It’s awesome!

You can pair this Spicy Butter Salmon in Foil with fluffy rice, quinoa salad, zucchini noodles, roasted asparagus, green beans, brussels sprouts or veggies. It’s a great meal for a quick dinner during the week.

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
