Teriyaki Salmon Foil Packets

Freash, wild caught salmon was on sale at Krogers last week for only $2.99/lb. We've been trying to eat healthier, eat on a budget, and fit more fish into our diet so when I saw the salmon, I knew we had to find a good and kid-friendly (both for Lue and Todd) recipe for it. I saw a couple teriyaki recipes and a couple done in foil and put them together to create this dish. It's super simple, cheap, and yet delicious. To make it super simple I used a premixed teriyaki marinade purchased from the store.

1. Marinate salmon in about 1/2 cup teriyaki marinade 1-2 hours in the refridgerator.
2. When salmon is done marinating, place each fillet in the middle of a squae piece of foil. Top with carotts (I used chopped baby carrots since it's all we had in the fridge) and snow peas. Top with another 2 Tbsp teriyaki marinade. Wrap up the foil so that the marinade cannot leak out yet steam can escape through the top.
3. Grill for 15 minutes on medium high. In the winter, I'm sure you could cook it in the oven too, probably around 350 for the same amount of time. Check the fillet for doneness by flaking it with a fork.

I served this with Lipton Teriyaki noodles on the side for an super easy and delicious meal. Luke mainly liked the noodles, but we were able to throw in small flakes of salmon and he never even noticed he was eating it. =)
