how to make foil packets
Making an entire healthy dinner in a foil pack sounds like a dream. You can cook it in the oven or on the grill. You can customize your foil pack by choosing your own ingredients. For example, my elder son doesn’t like asparagus and always puts mushrooms instead. Everybody choses what they want and prepare foil packets themselves. This makes everybody happy. And clean-up is seriously a breeze!
You will need a good quality strong aluminium foil to make packets.
Place salmon and asparagus in the center of a foil piece, season with salt and pepper. Add buttery garlic sauce and top with shredded parmesan cheese. Cover the salmon and asparagus with foil and seal the edges.

Why cook salmon in foil
- The aluminium foil locks in moisture and guarantees that salmon turns out to be flaky and tender.
- It is a healthy way to cook salmon. Even if you don’t add any butter, you still get delicious juicy salmon without it.
- The whole process of opening up the packets of lemon parmesan salmon & asparagus is exciting. That burst of amazing smells when you open the packets is to die for!
- Clean-up is a breeze.
