Remember when I posted that Homemade Teriyaki Sauce recipe and just left you hanging with nothhhhhing to put that delicious, magic little trickle of gold on top?
Well, times are changing today, my friend.
Enter: Honey Teriyaki Lime Salmon Baked in Foil.
Yep, she’s a beaut.
We don’t eat a ton of animal protein around here, but when we do it’s often fish. With Brani coming from a tiny Croatian island and all (#BeautifulTruth), it only seems natural, right?
In an effort of full transparency and disclosure, another thing I do not do that often is bake stuff in foil.
But every now and then I’ll get over myself and make some Honey Garlic Salmon Baked in Foil, or some Honey Teriyaki Lime Salmon Baked in Foil, and be super happy about the whole situation.
I do want to get up on my little soap box here right now and get all nerdy on you for a sec ?, so bear with me as I plead for using recycled aluminium foil.
We just waste too much of this stuff, and it takes a ton of resources to produce, so if you want to join me in high-fifing the heck out of your kitchen drawer, order this recycled aluminium foil from Amazon* for when you REALLY need some.
And P.S. if you feel like not using foil and still eating baked salmon, and also like eating allthesummerflavorsever, you can always make this One Sheet Pan Tuscan Baked Salmon and Veggies and be equally as dinner-happy.
Yep, dinner-happy. It’s a legit feeling.
Now as you’re making this, you’ll notice how stupidly easy it is. You’ll turn on your oven. Do not forget to turn on your oven, friend.
Then you’ll get your side of salmon, place it on a piece of recycled foilyou got from Amazon* (convinced yet? ?) on a baking sheet. Skin side down, duh.
Tuck a few slices of lime underneath, generously drizzle with sauce (who are we kidding, GO ALL OUT, #sorrynotsorry for virtually shouting), wrap up and bake.
P.S: It doesn’t matter if the foil doesn’t entirely cover the salmon, it’s merely a vessel to keep the sauce as tight around the fish as possible.
Then, more sauce, because YOLO.
Is that even still a thing, YOLO? Whatever, I’m always a million years behind trends anyways (it took me like three years to buy a pair of jeggings and now I live in these things, they’re probably not even fashunable anymore??)
So whatever, just add more sauce on top and serve it with brown rice or quinoa or soba noodles and a rainbow of stir fry veggies or even a Thai Peanut Ginger Chopped Salad, since that’s what us nerdy food kids do.
Because if I’m always late to all the other trends in the world, I know one thing I’m never late for: Food ????????
