We were away last week, so when we got home, I was anxious to get back in the kitchen. But I wanted something easy, healthy and delicious to kick things off again. This is one of our very favorite recipes, and I knew it was just the thing to get us back into the swing of things. The glaze is sweet and delicious, and the salmon and beans get cooked to perfection. The only change I made this time around was to put a little olive oil down underneath the salmon pieces so that the skin wouldn’t stick. It worked beautifully!
Yields: 4 servings
Estimated time: 30 minutes
Salmon is glazed with honey, soy sauce, and lime and then baked foil packet-style with garlic and fresh green beans.
4 6-oz salmon filets
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce*
2 tsp honey
Red pepper flakes
3 green onions, cut and divided (white and light green parts separated from dark green)
1 lime, quartered
Green beans, trimmed (I used 12-15 per packet; thinner ones work best)
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 425.
Tear 4 pieces of foil 12-14 inches long.
Place a salmon filet in the center of each piece of foil.
Whisk soy and honey together in a small bowl (a few seconds in the microwave will help if it’s slow to come together).
Brush each filet with soy-honey mixture until it’s gone.
Squeeze 1 lime wedge over each filet.
Sprinkle each filet with pepper, white & light green onions, and pinch of crushed red pepper.
Place green beans on top of the filet (they won’t all stay) and top with garlic slices, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt.
Seal the foil packet – bring the right and left sides together and fold down, sealing, and then fold up each end to seal.
Bake for 18 minutes.
Let cool a few minutes before tearing open the foil and transferring to plates.
Serve the salmon and green beans drizzled with a spoonful of the foil packet sauce and remaining green onion tops.
