Orange Salmon Packets Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Orange Salmon Packets which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) salmon fillets
  2. cup (60 g) plain yogurt
  3. 2 tablespoons (30 g) mayonnaise
  4. teaspoon orange extract
  5. 1 tablespoon (1.5 g) Splenda
  6. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice
  7. 2 scallions, finely minced
  8. 1 tablespoon (3.8 g) parsley, finely minced

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425F (220C, or gas mark 7).

Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, orange extract, Splenda, lemon juice, scallions, and parsley.

Set aside.

If your salmon fillets have skin on them, remove it and cut the fish into 4 serving-sized pieces.

Tear 4 large squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Place each piece of salmon in the center of a square of foil and spoon 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of the sauce over it.

Fold the foil up over the salmon, bringing the edges together, and roll the edges to make a tight seal.

Roll up each end as well.

When all your salmon fillets are snug in their own little packets, bake them for 15 minutes.

(You can put your salmon packets in a roasting pan if you're afraid they'll spring a leak, but I just put mine right on the oven rack.

) Place on individual serving plates, cut open, and serve.

If you have a little sauce left over, serve it on the side.
