Garlic Herb Salmon and Zucchini Foil Packets – a delicious, complete meal bursting with flavor from one foil pouch!
For someone with a website dedicated to food, I can be a horribly scatterbrained cook.
I am someone who often forgets to make meals ahead of time – relying on just throwing something together at the last minute.
Lately, with my husband and I both trying out a slow-carb (think paleo, but no fruit and with beans) diet, I’ve been especially guilty of slacker cooking – and I’ve relied on my fair share of dump it and bake style meals.
One night I was particularly rushed, and just exhausted from the thought of dinner, when I decided to put a spin on a recent favorite recipe – a simple sheet pan salmon bursting with lemon and herb flavor.
This dish is a complete meal on one pan – complete with side dishes!
And the best part? You just dump the ingredients, drizzle the oil and sprinkle the herbs – then bake!
You can’t get any easier or more delicious than this meal in just 15 minutes – this will be one of your new go-to dinners!
