Foil Wrapped Salmon
Wrapping salmon in foil is one of the best ways to prepare fish! I love that you can either bake the foil wrapped salmon in the oven or throw it on the grill.
And because the fish and vegetables steam inside the foil, keeping it moist and tender without overcooking or drying out. I’ve been making this recipe for years, and I still find it fool-proof.
I’m not a huge fan of hot dogs, so I’ve been known to show up at a BBQ in the summer with a packet of my own fish ready to put on the grill. I know, I know, but I only do this with close friends.
What you’ll need:
- Snow Peas
- Baby Bella Mushrooms
- Lemon Slices
- Green Onions
- Sesame Seeds
- Coconut Aminos
- Sesame Oil
- Lemon Juice
- Salt & Pepper
Making the Recipe
This foil wrapped salmon recipe is shockingly easy. Not only are the ingredients easy to come by (I can find everything I need at every local grocery store), but the whole thing comes together with only a few minutes of hands-on time.
You need to make the simple Asian-inspired marinade and slice the vegetables, but that’s pretty much it. And once that’s done, you’ll simply layer the ingredients right inside individual foil packets.
The salmon will marinate inside the foil packet, so there’s no need to dirty an extra dish!
How to Assemble the Foil Packets:
- Pull the sides of four large pieces of foil up a bit to make a slight bowl-like shape. Divide the sliced mushrooms and snow peas among the four foil pieces, and placing them in a heap in the middle.
- Place one salmon fillet on top of each veggie heap.
- Pour the marinade on top and turn a bit to coat. Add a slice of lemon.
- Seal the foil packets at the sides and top, and allow the fish to marinate inside.
That’s it! You can either bake in the oven or grill outside, whatever you prefer!

Place one fillet of fish on each and lay a slice of lemon on top of it. Pull the sides of the foil up a bit, and gently press only two of the the ends together.
