Do you want a meal that you can just put in the oven and it’s ready to eat? Salmon in foil is a perfect dish for a busy weekday meal. You can make this within 20 minutes!
Foil Wrapped Salmon is such a classic Japanese meal. It’s simple, you add salmon, seasonings, and some vegetables and cover with foil, then put it in the oven for 15 minutes. You can get moist and tender salmon as well as rich flavorful vegetables. You can make it in 20 minutes so I highly recommend for a busy day’s meal.
