This healthy and easy dinner is also one of those perfect meals that appeals to every member of my family.  I love that clean-up and prep work is minimal (thanks to the foil packets), and my kids love the pesto sauce that flavors the fish.

  • 4 salmon fillets about 6 ounces each
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  1. Heat oven to 350F (180C). Spray 4 large pieces of aluminum foil with cooking spray.

  2. Place each salmon fillet on top of a piece of aluminum foil. Top each fillet with about 2 tablespoons pesto, ¼ cup of onion, ¼ of the tomatoes, and approximately 2 tablespoons of feta cheese. There's no need to measure the ingredients -- just use as much or as little as you like!
  3. Seal the aluminum foil packets by folding them over the fish and pinching tightly to close. Place the foil packets on a large baking sheet and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
Recipe Notes

Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half, using only 2 salmon fillets. The cooking instructions remain the same.
