What’s For Dinner? Garlic-Ginger Salmon Packets!

Why We Love It

Fresh ingredients, easy cleanup, and a low calorie count make this salmon dish a perfect pick for spring.


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce (we like San-J or VH)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut four pieces of heavy-duty foil to 12 inches square.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees or heat barbeque to medium.
  3. Place each salmon fillet on a piece of foil.
  4. Combine the ginger, cilantro, garlic, and fruit peels.
  5. Spoon mixture over salmon.
  6. Combine the vinegar, soy sauce, salt, and pepper.
  7. Drizzle sauce over salmon.
  8. Fold foil around fish and seal tightly.
  9. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork (about 15 minutes).


  • If you’re short on fruit, mix and match what you have on hand. (For example, you could use 4 teaspoons of orange peel instead of 2 teaspoons each of lemon and orange peel.)
  • Fresh herbs amp up the flavour of this dish.
  • Serve quinoa salad with the salmon for a complete meal.
