Herbed Salmon Packets Recipe

“This is a fast and easy way to prepare healthy fish”, says Lois Kinneberg of Phoenix, Arizona. “You can experiment with different herbs and fish, and add matchstick vegetables to the packet.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat Caesar vinaigrette
  • 1/3 cup salad croutons

Directions

  • 1. Place each salmon fillet on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Sprinkle with garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; top each with a lemon slice. Drizzle with vinaigrette; sprinkle with croutons.
  • 2. Fold foil around fish and seal tightly. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 2 servings.
