Spring is right around the corner, and some of the season’s best vegetables are already available. One spring favorite, asparagus, is an excellent source of several vitamins, including A, C, E and K, and is also low in calories.
During this Lenten season, salmon is a great protein option as it also serves as a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Make this recipe with your family!
Salmon and Veggie Foil Packets
4 (4 ounces each) skinless salmon fillets
2 medium zucchini, sliced
2 medium yellow squash, sliced
½ medium red onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon lime juice
Zest of 1 lime
Preheat oven to 400.
Cut 4 sheets of heavy duty foil into ~14-inch squares. Place salmon in center of each square. Divide zucchini, squash, onion and bell pepper among each square, surrounding salmon. Pull up edges of foil to form a packet.
In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Divide mixture evenly over salmon and veggies. Seal foil packets tightly, leaving a bit of space for air circulation.
Set foil packets on a rimmed baking pan, and cook in 400 degree oven 25 minutes.
