If you have never cooked salmon in foil, or anything else for that matter, it is something you really need to try. This is just super moist and delicious. It almost falls apart. And, everything for dinner except the rice is cooked all in one little packet together – perfect little individually wrapped packages of goodness.
This recipe really doesn’t have many ingredients and comes together pretty fast. Plus, it is pretty, so it would make a great quick dinner for guests! And, I almost didn’t even think of it, but it is quite healthy, so there is no downside here at all!
Asian Inspired Salmon in Foil
- 4 6-8 ounce salmon fillets
- 3 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 4 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used low sodium.)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon hot chili oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- heavy duty aluminum foil for pouches
- cooked rice for serving (I used brown rice.)
- Toss together vegetables.
- Stir together soy sauce, sesame oil, chili oil, and lemon juice.
- Toss vegetables with about 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce mixture.
- Take four pieces of foil a little larger than the width of each piece of salmon and put about 1/4 of the vegetable mixture on each.
- Place the salmon on top of the vegetables.
- Drizzle the remaining soy sauce mixture over the salmon.
- Wrap salmon in foil, being sure to roll the edges of the foil tightly so the liquid doesn’t cook out.
- Place on a cookie sheet and back for approximately 30 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Time will vary depending on the thickness of your salmon.
- Serve over rice.
