Salmon Foil Dinner

Pin It


Foil Dinners . . . Hmm, bringing back memories of campfire hamburger patties either burned to a crisp because the fire was too hot, or more likely carrots burned and meat raw?  Fortunately, you don’t have to pitch a tent or build a campfire to make a yummy foil dinner.  : )

This is one of my favorite ways  to cook salmon, especially in the winter when it’s too cold to grill {okay, actually it is almost 70 degrees here in Texas, but I know that some of  your grills are covered in snow right now, so the oven is a really good option for you!}

You are sure to love this meal:  Easy, Fast and Healthy – clean up is a breeze too {win win!}.


Salmon Foil Dinner

What you need:

Salmon fillets
Veggies thinly sliced (see my favorites below)
Red potatoes, cooked
Fresh lemon juice
Lemon pepper


Place a salmon fillet on a sheet of foil.  Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top and sprinkle with lemon pepper.  Top with all your favorite veggies thinly sliced- the more the better!  My favorites include:  Carrots, onions, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, and asparagus – add what you love or whatever is in your frig.  Sprinkle the vegetables with salt, thyme, and rosemary.   Place a pat of butter on the top and fold the foil to make a sealed packet.



Cook at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  While you’re waiting on the salmon, cook some red potatoes to serve on the side – they’re great for soaking up the juices!
