Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounces) salmon fillets, skinless
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vietnamese chile-garlic sauce (sambal)
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced plus more for garnishing

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • To make the Asian butter, in a small pot melt the butter (or melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave). Add the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, and chile-garlic sauce (sambal). Mix to combine.
  • Place 4 pieces of aluminum foil (about 12 x 18 inches each) on the kitchen counter. Place the salmon on the center of the foil. Place the carrots and snow peas next to the salmon.
  • Season the salmon and vegetables lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Spoon the Asian butter over the salmon and vegetables. Sprinkle the scallions over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon and seal the packages completely.
  • Place the foil packets on a sheet pan and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through but still a bit pink in the middle.
  • Transfer the packets to a plate, open and garnish with scallions (optional). Enjoy!
