You know that feeling… when you’ve been trolling the Pinterest archives for a few hours and you’ve just about had it. How can all of these weird bloggers perfect their dishes and have them look picture-ready? Well, besides that being a general part of daily life around my computer and I – I finally got around to trying a method that I’ve seen time and time again on Pinterest: The greatly talked about foil salmon recipe. It’s supposed to be easy, simple, healthy and low on the clean-up scale (and surprisingly – it lived up to the hype).
- 1 filet of salmon (I used pistachio encrusted)
- 8 or so cherry tomatoes
- Veggie of your choice, chopped
- Onions if you so choose
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
- All of the other seasoning you could want
- Take out a piece of foil that you can wrap the salmon in along with toppings and spray it down with some olive oil. Preheat oven to 400F
- Gently place the salmon the middle as pictured and layer on all of your toppings (i.e. onions, tomatoes, brussel sprouts, etc.) and then sprinkle on the seasonings. For salmon, I could picture something light like thyme, lemon, oregano and salt/pepper.
- Fold up the salmon + toppings until there isn’t any part showing, and place on baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes
- Take it out somewhat carefully and enjoy!
This has to be the moment of moments, when you actually find out a recipe online isn’t as horridly difficult and complex as it looks. I particularly love the way that the instructions are simple but very easy to mess around with. Even after I made my version with tomatoes and brussel sprouts, I wanted to try something with squash and red onions and maybe even experiment with paprika. Decree? This recipe is a serious winner in my book and something I will be putting in my personal “make every week” ideas, especially for weeknight dinners. Let me know if you may any adjustments or what works/didn’t work for you.
