Salmon and veggies in foil

Healthy, quick and easy dinner in foil recipe, with nutritious fresh summer veggies and flavorful salmon.

More than a week ago we have decided to eat healthier: we’ve cut the carbs, no more sugar and flour. Roughly we are keeping us to primal blueprint diet, but we are not 100 % committed. We haven’t eat bread, pasta, rice or potatoes for more than 10 days. When your usual side dishes are not permitted to eat and you are full of salads and steamed vegetables, it’s hard to find easy, quick and healthy recipes, which are not boring. But here it is: a great salmon and veggies recipe, which is super healthy, easy to prepare and is ready in 35 minutes.

To prepare this recipe you will need salmon fillets, fresh summer vegetables, like zucchini, tomato, bell pepper and onion, herbs, butter and foil. That’s it! That’s all the ingredients you’ll need for this great clean eating recipe in a foil packet.

Dice the vegetables and cut 2 foil sheets about 20 cm /11-inch long. First layer the zucchini slices, then place the salmon, season it, finally place the diced tomato, bell pepper and onion on top of fish. Wrap the salmon and the veggies, fold the ends of the foil to seal and the packets are ready to bake.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how thick the salmon is, then serve these great packets. This salmon and veggie in foil is a super delicious and super healthy recipe, it’s gluten-free, sugar-free, primal, if you’re using olive oil instead of butter, it can be paleo and dairy-free as well. If you are a salmon fan, you’ll love this easy and quick recipe. This dish was one of the best dishes we have ate since we are eating healthier (except the strawberry blackberry cheesecake we ate at my boyfriend’s birthday). Hope you will like it!
