I think somebody needs to check my temperature. I’m sure I must be sick. It’s Monday and I’m actually not wishing it was still the weekend. I mean, of course I’d love an extra day, but it’s not the usual ohmygodshootmeintheheadit’smonday kind of day. I had a super relaxing, yet productive, weekend and I woke up this morning ready to face a busy week. I guess small miracles really can happen!!
Maybe it was the amazing dinner I had last night. Quick, easy, healthy, and most importantly…delicious! But, anytime I get a recipe from Shawnda’s blog, I know it will be nothing less than amazing. Her pictures alone make me want to lick my computer screen…not that I’ve ever tried it or anything. Seriously.
Come on…you know you want to try it, too!! I’ve had this on the menu for a couple of weeks now and thank gaawwwd I finally got around to making it!!! And then I devoured it in about 3.5 seconds. Or something like that. Deeelish!
Foil-Packet Soy-Lime Salmon with Green Beans
Very slightly adapted from Confections of a Foodie Bride
2 6 oz salmon fillets
- 2 Tbsp Ponzu Lime Sauce (or soy sauce)
- 2 tsp honey
- Red pepper flakes
- 2 green onions, cut and divided (white and light green parts separated)
- 1 lime, quartered
- Green beans, trimmed (10-12 per packet)
- 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
- Olive oil for drizzling
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 425 and tear 2 pieces of foil, about 12 inches long.
- Place a salmon fillet in the center of each piece of foil (skin side down, if the skin is still on).
- In a small bowl, whisk together the ponzu and honey. Brush the salmon fillets with the sauce until it is gone, then squeeze 1 lime quarter over the top of each.
- Season with salt and pepper, then top with the white & light green onions, and a pinch of crushed red pepper.
- Place 10-12 green beans on top of each piece of salmon and top with garlic slices and a drizzle of olive oil.
- Seal the foil packet by bringing the right and left sides together and folding them down a couple of times to seal, then fold up each end.
- Bake for about 18 minutes, and allow to cool for a few minutes before opening (be careful of the steam that will be released!)
- Transfer the contents of each packet to a plate, drizzle remaining sauce from the packet over the top. Then, sprinkle the dark green parts of the onion on top and serve with the remaining lime quarters.
