Salmon, Asparagus and Tomato in Foil

A fast healthy dinner has never been easier.  You’ll love my Salmon and Vegetables in Foil!

Hi friends!

I love finding ways to cook without making a big mess.  During the week, it so nice to be able to minimize the amount of work you put into a nice meal without sacrificing taste.

My Salmon and Vegetables in Foil is the perfect meal to do just that.   You cook the entire meal in a foil packet and throw it away.  The only clean up is a mixing bowl and a spoon.

This is how I make my Salmon and Vegetables in Foil!

Layer the asparagus first.

Lay the seasoned salmon on top.

Coat with yummy pesto.  Use a high quality store bought from the refrigerated section or deli.  You can also make your own!  I’m planning on working on some fresh pesto recipes for this summer as soon as I plant my basil.

Top it off with fresh halved tomatoes.

Tent the fish into a closed packet and cook for about 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your piece of fish.  In case you were counting, we only used six ingredients!

Open the packet back up to serve and you have a quick meal without fuss or cleanup.

The flavors all combine and the fish comes out moist and delicious!  My salmon and vegetables in foil is truly a one pan Wunder. (bahhh…. sorry…. couldn’t resist the cheesiness.)

Enjoy!

    I made this tonight and we loved it! Great flavors and healthy too. I think my salmon was thicker so I opened the packet and broiled it on high for 5 extra minutes. I think green beans or Brussel sprouts would work well too.

    This may be a silly question, but do you remove the skin from the salmon prior to cooking it in the foil packet?

      Not silly! Honestly you can do it either way– whichever you prefer.

    I wonder if I could do this with chicken, somehow … it looks AMAZING. I’d probably honestly just go with the veggies. 😉

      I’ve never cooked chicken, so I don’t know… but it seems like you could. The veggies alone would also be great!

    Love this combo of ingredients! If I throw in some Sriracha, to give it heat, it will be perfect! Making this tomorrow! Thanks! ??

  13. I don’t eat salmon but the rest of my family does! They would like this

    Oh and I thought for sure you were going to put it on the grill! I cook with foil packets on the grill all the time and you not only don’t have the mess, you also don’t heat up the house unnecessarily, AND you get that wonderful grilled flavor. I bet this recipe would work wonderfully on the grill. Looks absolutely delicious…and healthy too!
