Recipe

This simple Baked Honey Salmon and Vegetables is cooked in foil and ready in under 20 minutes.

With the busy holiday season upon us, it feels like every day is a marathon to get to the end. By the time dinner rolls around, I barely have enough energy to open up the fridge. Is anyone else feeling that way? I am counting down the days until the holidays are here for some rest and relaxation. Until then, I am constantly thinking about ways to make dinner quick and easy.

This Baked Honey Salmon and Vegetable dish is just that. Everything is cooked in one large piece of foil, which means no clean up.  The fish comes out delicious and flaky and there is minimum prep and clean up. This recipe uses a simple sauce of honey, olive oil, garlic, white wine vinegar, and thyme that creates tons of flavor without lots of added fat. The salmon is cooked as a whole piece with veggies underneath and on top. It makes a great family style meal for a special occasion and comes together in under 20 minutes. For smaller portions, like the one in the photo, you can also cook each individual piece of salmon in its own foil packet. I served mine with some frozen brown rice that I drizzled with the extra sauce from the salmon - yum.
