How To: Salmon with Vegatables in Foil Bake

  • - 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • - 2 handfuls green beans, ends trimmed
  • - 3 tsp olive oil, divided
  • - Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • - 2 Tbsp pesto
  • - 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • - 2 handfuls grape tomatoes, halved

  • 1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut two pieces of aluminum foil. Boil green beans 3 minutes, then carefully drain. 
  • 2. Toss green beans with 2 tsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste, divide into 2 servings and layer in center of each piece of foil. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper.
  • 3. Layer salmon over green beans and then spread 1 Tbsp pesto over top.
  • Drizzle 1 tsp lemon juice over each fillet.
  • 4. Toss tomatoes with remaining 1 tsp olive oil and season lightly with salt.
  • Spread over each salmon fillet.
  • 5. Wrap sides of foil in and roll and crimp edge to seal, then wrap ends upward to seal
  • (don't wrap too tight)
  • 6. Place side by side on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven until salmon has cooked through, about 20 - 28 minutes (cook time will vary depending on thickness of salmon)
As you can see, we paired this dish with spinach and ricotta tor tortellini , random some may say, but we didn't have mashed potato haha
