This recipe is made for lazy days turning frozen food into a freaking fabulous dish that looks like you’ve spent all day prepping. The tinfoil tent is key here to cooking properly and allowing the salmon to soak up all those incredible seasonings. It also makes for extremely easy cleanup. If you’ve done it right, the pan won’t even be dirty.

Can I get a boo-yah?
