Foil Salmon

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
  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Fold up the salmon + toppings until there isn’t any part showing, and place on baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes
  4. 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.
