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.


  1. I love salmon! This is definitely a wonderful dish.

  2. Your salmon looks fabulous Jan! What a delicious idea!

  3. Hmm. That's what I should have done.... Just sprinkled worcester & soy sauce over the salmon last night and baked it in between ironing 10,000 tablecloths (I know how to have fun). This looks so much more exciting.

    Neat idea with the ginger. Could try grating it before freezing - even quicker when you come to use it.....

  4. Foil keeps all the flavours in and makes the fish really moist. That's a great recipe Jan!

  5. What a tasty and healthy dinner - my entire family would love this.

  6. MMMMMMMMMM....Jan!! I love everything with teriyaki sauce!!! This fishy dishy looks superb!!!

  7. I baked some fish in a packette last night too! It's one of my favourite ways to prepare a dinner.

    Good tip on the ginger, my freezer's loaded with some!

  8. That's another great salmon idea from Jan's kitchen. I love all of those ingredients.

  9. I want some crusty bread to sop up that broth!

  10. Lovely recipe Jan...My DH loves salmon in just about anyway he can get it.
    I loved the tip about fresh ginger, I don't know how many times I have thrown ginger away because its gone bad before I had a chance to use it all up.

  11. Salmon teriyaki is one of my favorites and this sound like a really nice way of preparing it.

  12. Another GREAT salmon dish Jan, How do you do it? Sure is a "keeper."

    Thanks for the tip on the ginger. I didn't know you could freeze it, which is why I always hesitate to buy it. You know, it's National Frozen Food Month here in the states and in the last 24 hours I've discovered ginger can be frozen and so can Pecans! I need to post about this:)

  13. Foil parcels are definitely the way to go when cooking salmon. This sounds delish, Jan. Thanks for the tip about the ginger.

  14. Oh...I love this recipe as I love salmon. Lovely idea Jan! :)

  15. Hi Jan,
    I just had to tell you, I made this recipe last night and it was Wonderful! Next time, I'll take pics:) I now have a supply of ginger on hand at all times thanks to you.

    Thanks again!!!!
