Saturday Recipe

I posted this recipe last year. Then, having posted the recipe yesterday with Thai Sweet Chili, not having the ingredients in house, I mixed some raw honey with some Tabasco and vinegar as below plus the sesame oil and added it to the parcel of fish. It worked very well and we both enjoyed it.

Ginger Sesame Salmon

"Salmon and grated ginger with sesame oil are cooked on a bed of chopped carrots, then served on 
fresh spinach leaves."

4 thin onion slices, separated into rings
2 sheets (12x18-inches each) Reynolds Wrap(R) Non-Stick Foil
2 medium carrots, cut into julienne strips or shredded
4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets, thawed
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 Tbs seasoned rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh spinach leaves

1. Preheat oven to 450°F or grill to medium-high.

2. Center one-fourth of onion slices and carrots on each sheet of Reynolds Wrap(R) Non-Stick Foil. Top with salmon. Sprinkle with ginger; drizzle with vinegar and oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make four packets.

4. Bake 16 to 20 minutes on a cookie sheet in oven.

5. OR grill 14 to 16 minutes in covered grill.

6. Serve salmon and carrots on a bed of spinach. Sprinkle with additional seasoned rice vinegar, if desired.

Have a great weekend


  1. Love the honey mixture you mentioned. I do that too and it's so yummy. Have you ever put almond extract in a chili sauce mixture? I really love it. Along with sorghum syrup.

    1. No I haven't Ivy. Must try it some time. Unfamiliar with sorghum syrup.

    2. I have a post coming up with it. I have more applesauce to make and so I will show you on the video what it is. Really very yummy stuff. Same with the flour.

    3. OK, will look out for it Ivy.

  2. Sounds like something easy enough for me to make.

    1. I love cooking in foil parcels Susan. Makes things so easy and cuts down on the washing up
