Fishy in a Pocket

Fishy in a Pocket

Well, seeing others are using tin foil pockets I will just introduce you to another new recipe, tried, and tasted in my home the other night. It pays to have adult children, especially when they start supplying meals for you. Ya Hoo!! (even if they don't want the family farm)

Fishy in a Pocket

1 square fillet of salmon
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
4 strips of carrots cut with a peeler
4 strips of zucchini cut with a peeler
2 tablespoons of finely chopped red onion
1/2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoons of fresh grated ground pepper
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of water

Serve on bed of brown rice.


Place fillet of salmon on foil (30cm x 30cm)
Salt and pepper the fillet
Drizzle sesame oil over fillet
Cover fillet with zucchini, carrot, and onions
Sprinkle ground ginger on top
Add soy sauce and water
Fold foil in on itself to form an air tight tent

Place in oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. The liquids in the fishy pocket poach the salmon. Salmon should be moist and fatty.
Remove from foil, drizzle liquids from foil on rice and serve.

I like the new way of preparing vegetables!
Those hands look so young and flawless.

Fillet the fish.
That can be a tad bit tricky.
The young ones know trendy skills.
It takes a bit of time, but it's nicer than having bones stuck in your throat.

Assemble the ingredients as prescribed.
Garnish with ginger sprinkled on top.

Those look like man hands...
Hm....Can Men Cook?

You bet!
Those adults cooked up a storm.
Serve the pocket of fish on brown rice.
Healthy, Nutritious and Simple.

Now you know how to get your grown up ones in the kitchen.


  1. I've hopped in the canoe. .I'll be down the sumas river in about 30 minutes. . oh wait, is it down stream or up stream. . .make that an hour.
    It looks so yummy, my favorite fish and I'll surely give it a try.

  2. Hey hey hey....this looks like it will fit in well with the boy's 2009 resolution to eat more fish! Yum...yes...those younger hands do come in 'handy' in the kitchen. What a very wonderful healthy combination....thanks for sharing!

  3. oh this recipe excites me. it also fits in with our family eating fish once a week and i am always looking for interesting ways to make it since we have only been doing it about a year or so.
    thanks alot.....share more fishy recipes if you have em. ;-)

  4. Ah, this recipe looks great! We're trying to get more fish into our diet but get so bored with just baking it. Thanks for a great idea! :)

  5. I have found that most meat counter personnel will fillet fish for you free if you ask them. It is also safer, if you have a tendency to miss bones like I do!

    This recipe looks great, and gives a good dose of Omega 3 fats, as well as good veggies.

  6. This sound very tasty! Do you ever feel like there are some meals that you don't really want to prepare but you'd sure want to eat?
    I wonder if this would be a good summer BBQ idea where everyone makes their own in an assembly line fashion.

  7. Marg, we love fish. I'll be trying this one for sure. Kathy
