  • 1 lb salmon filleted
  • 3 c cut green beans defrosted or vegetable of choice
  • 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds plus more to garnish
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread out 4 12" x 11" foil sheets on a baking sheet.  Divide and center the cut green beans between the foil sheet about 3/4 c. Place a salmon fillet on top of the green beans. Season the salmon with the salt and pepper. Fold all four sides of the foil into the center to create an envelope. Open one side to pour the sauce.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together the soy sauce, honey, canola oil, sesame seeds, garlic, and ginger powder, and red pepper flakes if using. Pour the sauce on to each piece of fish. Seal the foil tightly and bake the packets for 15-17 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the packets to cool for 5 minutes before opening. They can be eaten from the foil or served over rice.
