Baked Salmon with Pesto Foil Packet

This baked salmon with pesto foil packet is a fun and easy way to cook salmon besides the usual method of grilling or pan-frying. I saw this recipe from Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food cookbook (this is the title of the UK edition, in US the book is called Food Revolution), which is mainly why I started making my own pesto.

With some pesto in the fridge, you can whip up this gourmet-looking meal effortlessly. The food is wrapped in a foil parcel and after baking, I simply serve the parcel straight on a plate so that the cleaning up, just like the cooking, is totally fuss-free.

  1. This is definitely delicious and easy to make. I like the addition of brussel sprouts – do they get caramelized as well after baked with the salmon?

  2. Looks so yummy and refreshing. Jamie Oliver is great I once saw him cook fish in a dish washers, yes a dish washer. :)

  3. Simple yet beautiful. The pesto must have kept the salmon moist and flavorful.

  4. Mmm….pesto with salmon…looks delicious!

  5. I am sooo with u on this recipe! It works very very well. I am a huge fan of Ministry of Food- so simple but very delicious. I think one of Jamie’s best book ever.

  6. This is a great all in one, easy to clean up individual serving dish. Perhaps I will do this on my lazy day.

  7. You are SO creative wiffy! Gotta love quick cleanup, right?

    My mom makes a similar recipe (similar in the way it is cooked in the foil like this one), but it has chicken breast, stuffing, mushrooms, peas, etc. in a sauce. It’s very moist and keeps all the flavor in. Let me know if you’re interested in it and I can send it to ya. :wink:
