Foil Baked Salmon with Feta Topping

Paul's mum and dad came for dinner last night and we had a great time. For our starter I made a marinade of olive oil, dark soy sauce, honey, a little bit of sugar and some chili sauce.

Problem is I have no idea how much of anything I used to make this marinade as I didn't know I was going to make it until I did. I had been speaking to my friend Jean who was also having a dinner party and was cooking salmon for starter too! She was doing hers in a rather yummy sounding ginger, honey and soy marinade. 

So, once I'd put the phone down I made a similar marinade without the ginger. So I decided on about 1tbs olive oil, 2tbs soy, 1tbs honey, a teaspoon of sugar and a dollop of chili sauce.

This picture was taken just as it was ready to go into the oven.

After marinating the salmon for about an hour, I wrapped each piece of salmon in it's own foil parcel and sliced some red onion, a piece of lemon and added some chopped parsley. Then I topped with cubed feta and spooned about 1 teaspoon of the marinade over and baked in the oven for about 15 minutes before opening the foil and cooking for about 5 minutes more.

When it came out of the oven it looked like this:

I then served it with some tabbouleh but I didn't put any mint in the tabbouleh coz I don't like it.


  1. I love salmon baked in foil. Great looking dinner, Jan.

  2. Jan, I cook a lot like that, just throw things in until it looks good. What kind of chili sauce, is it the Thai kind?

  3. Thanks Sylvie and Raquel - I used 'Maggi' extra hot chili sauce in a bottle.

  4. Hey, it's a festive feta salmon and you could sub dill in your tabouleh and then it would become (ready)........."dillicious"!

  5. I would never have though to bake the salmon with feta. It sounds good though.

  6. thanks for dropping by my site... this salmon not only looks delish but healthy as well..the feta is intriguing. hmmmn.. might have it tonight too, we'll see.
