How do I make this Asian Glazed Salmon in Foil?

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil- to protect baking sheet.

In a small mixing bowl combine, honey, garlic, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger. 

Whisk until well combined.

Tear off a 24 inch x 18 inch piece of foil. Fold it in half to make a 18 x 12 foil piece. Place foil piece on top of prepared baking sheet.

Place salmon fillets on the center of the foil.

Fold the edges of the foil inward- so the honey mixture stays in. 

Pour honey mixture over the salmon.

Fold foil over salmon, covering completely and seal completely, by pressing the edges together.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. 

Open the top of foil and set oven to broil.

Broil for 5-7 minutes, or until salmon is caramelized.

Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

Serve with cauliflower rice, jasmine rice, or brown rice, and your favorite steamed vegetable. 

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or freezer up to a month.

Hi Stef

Yes, absolutely! Just heat grill and cook for 20-25 minutes in the foil packets.

Thank you!

What is the best way to freeze this recipe? Before making the salmon or after it’s cooked?

I just made this tonight. It is AMAZING!!!! I love it so much. My whole family does. Will definitely be making this often! I think it is my favorite salmon I ever had. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. The only thing was I had to turn up the heat and cook it longer. The salmon I got was really thick and big slices so it had to cook longer. Once again thank you and I definitely recommend this to everyone.
