PrintEmail Ingredients 1/4 cup lite teriyaki sauce1 tablespoon brown sugar1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger1 teaspoon cornstarch1 1/2 cups snow pea pods (about 4 ounces), trimmed1 large carrot, cut into 2-inch long very thin "matchstick" strips (about 1 cup)4 -- 5-ounce salmon fillets, skin removed -- Salt and freshly ground pepper1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, optional Instructions Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut four 12-inch square pieces of aluminum foil. In a bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, ginger, and cornstarch until well blended. Divide the snow peas and carrots evenly and place in the center of each piece of foil. Lay the salmon on top of the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the teriyaki mixture evenly over each piece of salmon. Seal each packet by bringing up the sides and folding the top edge over twice. Seal the edges in the same way. Place the packets on a baking sheet and bake until the fish is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 18 minutes. Open the packets (be careful of the steam!), place the salmon on individual plates, top with the vegetables and sauce, and serve. Top with toasted sesame seeds as desired. NOTE: For convenience, use bottled minced ginger. Serve with rice and your favorite fruit on the side.
