Salmon & Veggie Foil Packets

Salmon & Veggie Foil Packets

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
Serves 4


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.
