These Dijon Tarragon Salmon Foil packs are SO easy and SO delicious.
Salmon foil pack dinners are coming in hot in our household, and I have no plan to stop anytime soon. Throw everything in foil, wrap it up, and bake it? Hells yes, that sounds easy enough. Not to mention, incredibly delicious. Cooking the salmon in the foil makes it so perfectly juicy- we’re not about dry salmon over here and this is anything BUT that.
To start, cut two 18 x 12 pieces of foil and place them onto your counter. Then, put a fillet of salmon into the center of each one and place the veggies to one side. Drizzle everything with olive oil, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dijon tarragon sauce and spread all over the tops of the salmon. Then add garlic, parmesan, and capers to the veggies. Wrap up each foil pack, making sure to pinch the sides so that the juices don’t escape. Bake for 20-25 minutes and dinner is ready! Literally so easy and so good!

- Place 2- 12 x 18 foil pieces onto your counter. Add salmon and veggies to the center of the foil, and then drizzle everything with olive oil, salt, and freshly cracked pepper.
- Add garlic, parmesan, and capers to the veggies.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, and tarragon until creamy. Spoon this mixture on top of the salmon fillets.
- Fold up foil packs starting with longer sides, then fold in shorter sides and pinch the ends together so that the juices don’t escape.
- Place foil packets onto a sheet pan and into the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of your fillets.
- Transfer contents of the foil packs to a plate, garnish with fresh parsley, a squeeze of lemon, and dig in!
