Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. Cut the stem of the mushroom cluster and shred. Slice the green pepper into rounds. Thinly slice the onion.
Lightly coat aluminum foil with butter. Lay the salmon on this and spread the mushrooms, green peppers, and onion on top. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sake. Repeat this process with all 3 salmon fillets.
Wrap the salmon in foil. Twist both ends to close tightly. Spread oil in a pan. Lay out the foil packets in the pan.
To steam, cook the packets over low heat for 20 minutes. Open the foil and pour ponzu sauce.
You can make this with flounder filets too!
Story Behind this Recipe
I get tired of grilled salmon. This recipe changes the salmon into something delicious, right under your nose.
Use vegetables and mushrooms of your choice. You can use white wine instead of sake. Make sure to coat the foil with butter before laying the salmon down as this will keep it from sticking. You only need a little butter.
