About $3.69 per serving

½ teaspoon ginger, peeled and grated or ¼ teaspoon dried
1 garlic clove or 1 teaspoon from jar, minced
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (about ½ lemon) or from the jar
2 tablespoons fresh basil (or 6-8 leaves), chopped or 1 tablespoon dried
1 pound salmon, skin removed, cut into 4 - 4 oz. filets
1 cup (dry) brown rice
2 cup fresh sugar snap peas
8 thin lemon slices
Aluminum foil

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. In a large bowl, combine ginger, garlic, vegetable oil, soy sauce, honey, lemon juice and basil and add fish. Marinate in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  2. Prepare rice according to instructions on package, excluding any salt or oil.
  3. Cut 8 pieces of aluminum foil; wide enough to fit one piece of salmon and ½ cup of snap peas.
  4. Remove fish from marinade and discard remaining marinade. Arrange lemon slices on top and bottom of fish filet. Place one fish filet and half of snap peas together on one piece of parchment. Cover with another piece of foil and tightly fold together top and bottom edges of foil to create a seal to the steaming pouch. Repeat for second portion. Place on baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
