Satisfying and tasty meals don’t always have to be complicated and packed with ingredients. Many times the most delicious food that comes out of your kitchen is the type that only has a few ingredients or it can be put together really quickly.
One recipe that comes to mind from my only list of weekly meals is chipotle albondigas which are served over some Mexican rice. The meatballs come together really quickly and the sauce is made up of tomatoes, garlic, onion, and chipotles but from the taste, you would think it took hours to make them.
Don’t worry I will share the recipe one day on the site. For now, I want to talk to you about honey soy Asian salmon foil packets. Yes, I know it sounds like a mouth full but this salmon is perhaps one of the best you will ever try.
The concept is simple, take some salmon coat it in honey, soy, and a few other Asian ingredients. Wrap it in foil and bake until the salmon is cooked. The salmon comes out tender and the foil packet allows the flavors to penetrate the fish like never before.
The simplicity, of course, comes from not having to mess with the fish because the oven and the foil do all the work while you focus on getting some veggies or perhaps some steamed rice ready to go with your fish.
If you are bored with pan seared salmon give this recipe a try to liven up your seafood consumption.
