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!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lay strip of foil on baking sheet.
Add zucchini and onion over salmon.
Top with herbs and extra virgin olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Fold foil into pouch.
Bake for 15 minutes, until salmon is opaque and vegetables are soft.
