Salmon Foil Packets make cooking salmon a breeze!
Living in Alaska we’re lucky to have a freezer fully stocked with fresh Alaskan Salmon and Halibut, however it does require work! People always ask us how we survive the cold dark winters and my answer is always the same, have you seen what summer is like up here? Our summers are spent fishing, hiking, boating, sight seeing and just soaking it all up before winter. It really makes the summers more enjoyable because you know it’s short and you need to enjoy it while it’s here.
Fishing is something my family enjoys doing throughout the summer. It is something that we have all bonded over and a tradition that has been passed down through the generations. My oldest daughter caught her first 3 fish last summer (2020) with her Dad and Grandpa and I cannot wait for her to get out there again this year.
Fishing for salmon is one of our favorite Summer activities!
These Salmon Foil packets are so flavorful and juicy. The moisture from the salmon and the coconut aminos make for a perfect sauce that the veggies and potatoes cook perfectly in.
Be sure to cut your potatoes thin so they cook through and are nice and tender when the salmon is done cooking. You can do this with a knife or mandolin.
How do you know when your salmon is fully cooked?
- Flakes easily with a fork.
- Not mushy in the center.
- Pull it out before it dries out!
- Asparagus, Bok Choy, Zucchini, Carrots
- Additional Sweet & Spicy Sauce
- Chopped green onions
You can also broil at the end to get a nice glaze. Be sure not to burn or over cook the fish!
Basically never turn your back to a broil situation.
