Salmon in a Pocket: Recipe
Fish feast, continued...
Salmon is one of those foods that everyone agrees is simple and great for you. It is rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids and low in fat and cholesterol. It's good "brain" food! So this was really quick to make (I did all the chopping and assembly before taking my suit off!) and the flavors were light, fresh, and super JUICY!
WARNING: Be really careful when opening the pouches - the steam could really burn you.
Salmon in a Pocket
1 1/4 Lb. Organic Salmon Fillet cut into 4 equal pieces
1 lemon, sliced into 8 thin slices
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
8 small fresh shittake mushrooms, sliced
4 Tbsp. Olive Oil, divided
4 one-half teaspoons of capers
12 Kalamata Olives, pitted
Preheat oven to 375.
Cut 4 pieces of aluminum foil into 10" x 10" squares. Place one piece of salmon into the center of each piece. Top with dill then capers followed by mushrooms, tomato pieces and the olives. Drizzle with olive oil and place two slices of lemon on top. Gather the foil at the top and pinch all sides together, creating a little pocket. Place each pocket on a large baking sheet and bake 25 minutes.
