Foil Baked Salmon and King Prawns with Chilli and Lime Butter

Another of my 'make it up as I go along' easy to cook salmon recipes.  Just bake the salmon in a foil parcel.  Add a few King Prawns and some other bits and bobs with lime zest and a squeeze of the juice along with a knob of butter.  Done and ready to eat in 20 minutes. 



Now that can't be bad can it?

Weight Watchers Smoked Haddock and Potato Parcels - Video Recipe

Whether you're on a diet or not this is a really nice recipe and it's so very easy to make.  It's very tasty and it's good for you!  Makes a change from eating meat all the time. 


If you're not on a diet a knob of butter would be good and a tablespoon of white wine instead of water!  My picture isn't too amazing but trust me it tasted good!

Cod en Papillote with Asparagus Mange Tout and Vine Tomatoes

'En papillote' is French for 'in parchment' and is a method of cooking in which the food has been put into a parcel and baked in the oven.

Cooking in a parcel is not only easy, it looks good and is exciting to open! I love making up recipes of things that can go in the parcel.

Teriyaki Salmon Baked in Foil

Quick and simple is what I was after yesterday! So, out came the kitchen foil and salmon yet again.
I made it up as I went along finding more things to add to my foil parcels.

Therefore the whole dish was made from bits and bobs in my fridge - for example just half a bell pepper is needed and one carrot - nothing too costly, just left overs really.
The picture below is one salmon fillet ready for the oven.

Teriyaki Salmon Baked in Foil

I prepared this before I went to work, so when I arrived home all that was needed was to pop the parcels into the oven and stir fry some rice noodles and Ta da, that's dinner sorted!


You will need to serve 2:
2 pieces of salmon fillet - skinless
a bottle of Teriyaki marinade - you wont need the whole bottle though!
1 small cube of fresh ginger root (half and inch cube) - peeled and finely diced
Put the salmon fillets into a small dish and add a good dose of the marinade and the chopped ginger. Cover with cling film. Keep basting them and leave for at least half an hour.

Preheat your oven to 200C/400F or Gas 6
Meanwhile, you can prepare the rest of the ingredients.
1 small carrot - sliced into very thin strips
half of a red bell pepper, or any colour you fancy - sliced into thin strips
1 small red onion - again sliced into thin strips
half of a fresh green chili pepper - de-seeded and sliced very finely
a lime - slice half of it and keep half for squeezing over that salmon later on
a little olive oil

How to do it:
Remove the salmon from the marinade but reserve the liquid for later.
Get yourself a two large pieces of good quality kitchen foil - the thin stuff isn't any good as it will tear easily.

Drizzle a little olive oil on each piece of foil.

Lay one piece of salmon in each foil - you will be making a parcel from the foil.
Add equal amounts of the sliced ingredients, bell pepper, onion, carrot and lime to each parcel and sprinkle with the chopped chili pepper.

Squeeze the lot with a little lime juice from the half you kept earlier.
Drizzle with a little of the marinade liquid and a little olive oil.

Bring the foil up each side till they meet and make a parcelPop them onto a baking tray into a preheated oven for about 20 minutes - depending on the size of your salmon pieces.


The end result was yummy. My picture isn't too good, but you can get the idea through the blur!


I served the salmon in the foil with some stir fried rice noodles that I'd added a little soy sauce to when stir frying. Simple and delicious!

Top Tip;
Did you know you can freeze fresh ginger root? It doesn't loose any of it's flavor and so you can be sure to always have some handy! All that happens to it is it goes soft. It defrosts in no time at all and can be used as normal.  So, next time you buy some freeze a bit in a plastic bag.

Salmon Baked with Herbs and Caramelised Lemons

When I saw Gordon Ramsay make baked salmon with herbs and caramelised lemons, I had to make it pretty much immediately.  

Now, he cooked a whole salmon but obviously for two people this would have been a bit of a salmon overdose me thinks.  So instead I used a 400g piece of filleted salmon but skin on which I removed once it was cooked.

I must say this was such an easy thing to make, I love cooking in foil or greaseproof paper, the smel when you open it is amazing.
