Salmon in Foil is a perfect dish for a busy weeknight meal! Light yet flavorful and DELICIOUS, this recipe is quick and simple to make, taking no more than 20 minutes from start to finish.
Prepare two 12” x 12” (30 x 30 cm) sheets of aluminum foil. Thinly spread the butter in the center on both sheets.
Add ½ Tbsp sake and ½ Tbsp butter on top.
Bring the top and bottom aluminum foil over the salmon and fold a few times. Then bring the sides together and fold a few times to make sure the foil is tightly closed and no opening. Repeat the same process for the second salmon.
Place the two sets of salmon in foil on a frying pan and cover with a lid (no need to add water). Cook the salmon over medium heat for 2 minutes, then medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can bake at preheated 400 ºF (200 ºC) oven for 12-15 minutes.
Carefully open the aluminum foil to enjoy the salmon, sprinkle chives and drizzle ponzu or soy sauce on top. Enjoy!
