Easy Basic Foil-Baked Salmon

Easy Basic Foil-Baked Salmon

This is great with inexpensive salmon and is easily made with ingredients on hand. It cuts down on dish-washing time, too.

Ingredients: 3 servings

3 cuts
Shimeji mushrooms (or other mushroom of your choice)
1/2 bunch
Butter (or margarine)
3 teaspoons
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, slice the onion into 3mm wedges, then trim and separate the mushrooms.
2. Put a dab of butter on aluminum foil, then spread the onions on top. Add a little salt and pepper.
3. Place the salmon on top of the onions.
4. Top with mushrooms.
5. Wrap and cook in a oven for 15-20 minutes. (Adjust the cooking time accordingly.)
6. Once it's finished, drizzle on ponzu (citrus-based soy sauce) to taste. I also recommend seasoning it with black pepper and other spices of your choice.
7. After Step 3, season with garlic seasoning for a more professional taste.
