Ingredients

500 g salmon skin on, cut into 5 fillets
5 tbsp butter, melted
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp basil, finely chopped, packed
½ tsp SIDS CRAZY LEMON
1 tbsp lemon juice, divided
1 tsp SIDS SALT & PEPPER
5 lemon slices

Directions

Preheat oven to 190°C.
Whisk melted butter, garlic, basil, SIDS CRAZY LEMON, lemon juice, SIDS SALT & PEPPER in a medium-sized bowl.
Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a baking tray. Layer a piece of baking paper that is slightly smaller than the foil on top.
Lay salmon fillets on paper with a slight gab between each one.
Pour half of the lemon-basil sauce over salmon fillets. Reserve the remaining sauce for later. Top each fillet with one lemon slice.
Close paper and aluminum foil around salmon to make a packet. Bake salmon for 14-16 minutes without undoing the foil packet.
Open the foil packet, pour remaining lemon-basil sauce over fillets and return salmon to oven under a High grill for 5-7 minutes. (Make sure you tear off or fold down any parchment paper that might be sticking up!)
Watch salmon closely while grilling. Once salmon starts to brown slightly, remove from oven and serve immediately.
