Ingredients

Salmon

  • 1 lb salmon 4 fillets, approximately 4-6 oz. each
  • 2 cups fresh snow peas
  • 2 cups baby bella mushrooms

Marinade

  • 1.5 tbsp lemon juice about half a lemon
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1.5 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Toppings

  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp green onions sliced
  • 1/2 lemon sliced

Instructions

Make the Marinade

  • Mince the garlic and grate the ginger. In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, juice of half of the lemon, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper.

Prepare the Foil Packets

  • Slice the mushrooms and green onions and set them aside. Slice the other half of the lemon into rounds.
  • Lay out four large sheets of tin foil. Divide the snow peas and sliced mushrooms between them, laying a small pile of veggies in the center of each piece of tin foil. 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.
  • Pour the marinade mixture onto each fish, coating the top & bottom. Close the foil, sealing it on the top and sides fully, and let it marinate for about an hour. 

Oven Instructions

  • Preheat to 375. Place the fish packets on a cookie sheet and bake for about 18-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. Open the foil to check for doneness (it should be flakey), and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions, and serve immediately.

Grill Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Carefully place the foil packets on the grill and cook for 10 minutes. Open the foil to check for doneness (it should be flakey), and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions, and serve immediately.
