Salmon, Squash, And Asparagus Packets

Salmon, Squash, And Asparagus Packets

Moist, perfectly cooked salmon is covered with a slightly sweet, slightly salty marinade made with hoison, soy, and honey, and then placed atop a bed of tender roasted vegetables. Fancy and sophisticated, no one will guess how easy this dish is to make!

With mother’s day coming up, I thought I would share my mom’s all-time-favorite recipe. Every time she took a bite, she kept reminding me how incredible it was. She’s asked me to make it for her on her special day, and I couldn’t be more delighted! This dish is easy, elegant, and sooo delicious! Not only that but it is a great source of Omega-3s and healthy fats. Huge portions, light, and fresh… what could be better?

Salmon, Squash, and Asparagus Packets

Serves 4         Serving size: 1 packet               Calories/Serving: 273


  • 1lb trimmed asparagus
  • 2tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8tsp salt
  • 1/8tsp pepper
  • 4c. 1/2-inch sliced (in rounds) summer squash (such as yellow or zucchini)(about 3 medium)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/8tsp salt
  • 1/8tsp garlic powder
  • 1 and 1/2 lb wild salmon, skinned and cut into 4 (6-oz) portions
  • 2tbl hoisin
  • 2tbl less-sodium soy sauce
  • 2tsp honey


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Take aluminum foil and tear it into 4 medium-large sheets. Cut the asparagus spears in half, and divide evenly (placing the asparagus in an even layer in the center of the foil) among the 4 sheets. Drizzle with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until asparagus is 3/4 of the way cooked.
  3. Remove from oven, flip asparagus over, and put 1c. of sliced squash in each packet (in an even layer). Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with remaining salt. Place a salmon fillet on each sheet.
  4. Prepare the marinade by combining the hoisin, soy, and honey in a small bowl. Evenly divide the mixture among the salmon, slathering it on the top and sides (don’t worry if some drips down into the veggies– that adds more flavor!)
  5. Now its time to make the packet! Take the edges of the aluminum foil and bring them together in the middle, making a seal. Transfer to a baking sheet, and cook for 20-30 minutes at 380 degrees, or until salmon is slightly opaque and cooked through.
  6. Devour 🙂
