    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
  • GREEN BEANS:
  • 3/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325°. Mix first seven ingredients.
  • Place each salmon fillet on an 18x12-in. piece of heavy-duty foil; fold up edges of foil to create a rim around the fish. Spoon lemon juice mixture over salmon; top with lemon slices. Carefully fold foil around fish, sealing tightly.
  • Place packets in a 15x10x1-in. pan. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 15-20 minutes. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
  • Meanwhile, place green beans, water and oil in a large skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients; cook, uncovered, until beans are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Serve with salmon.

    made one piece of salmon. Lemon dressing was easy to mix up. I added a dash of soy sauce. Salmon nicely bakes in oven. This salmon recipe could easily be grilled salmon. Made microwave steamed package of green beans instead of green bean part of recipe.
