I saw this recipe a few days ago and thought it looked like a perfect, fresh and healthy meal that wouldn’t take too much work to put together. Boy, was I right! This is easy to put together, and doesn’t make much of a mess in the kitchen, since the foil contains all of the juices while it cooks. We absolutely loved this, and I can see making a lot of variations on the contents of the packet to switch things up. The salmon is sweet and spicy and insanely moist. I’ll definitely be making this one again!
Foil Packet Soy-Lime Salmon with Green Beans
Confections of a Foodie Bride
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.
