AN EASY RECIPE FOR SALMON BAKED IN FOIL

Give me anything baked in tin foil or parchment paper, and I am totally A-OK!

Hi ya!! Wassup?? How are we all doin’? It’s the first week of absolutely NO school, and while I’m completely lovin’ this no alarm clock wake up call, the screaming little girls at 6 a.m. wake up call is waaaaay worse! You guuuuys, omg! WHO KNEW!

And WHY are they up that early?! What have they got to do that early in the day except for spinning their fidget spinners and asking me for evvvvery breakfast item known to (wo)man and end up eating a bowl of cereal, instead. Yes, while the hot homemade pancakes are sitting next to them!!

I’m learning, I’m learning…

BUT, for the reason that I’m completely spent by 5 pm, dinners are made in foil or parchment paper because I am sooooo over and done. Cleaning up is a breeze and everyone, including me, is satisfied.

Look at that golden flaky maple mustard salmon deal up there? How could I NOT be satisfied?

HOW TO MAKE SALMON BAKED IN FOIL

Following the same method as I did here in my One Pan Maple Mustard Chicken and Potatoes (YUM!), the sauce is prepared with a couple of mustards + maple syrup that result in one suhweeeet mess!

I, then, pour it over a beautiful and fresh whole salmon fillet, seal it up, and pop it in the oven. Seriously, this takes all of 3 minutes.

To add a crispier texture, I also like to put this Maple Mustard Salmon under the broiler for a few minutes after it’s done cooking. IT makes a delicious difference.

Before you know it, dinner is done!

In the meantime, I’d suggest making some green beans – try my Roasted Green Beans, pleeeease! – and a nice helping of brown rice. You won’t believe how good all this goes together! AND it’s healthy!

Get on this AY-SAP!

ENJOY!

      Hi! I just plugged it all into my WW calculator and it comes out to be 4 freestyle points per 1 serving, or per 8 ounces of fish. 🙂
