Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Salmon Foil Packets

My dad has always enjoyed fishing. So much so that he even took the grand kids fishing as soon as they were able to go. Caleb took to it and will still, to this day, ask to go fishing every once in a while.

Me, I’ve never really gotten into the whole sitting around waiting for a fish to jump on my hook. I think it’s mostly because of the waiting in between bites and having to be quiet. I’m not good at being quiet for long.

But I’ve always loved the fish my daddy brought home. Usually it was crappy and catfish. My mom would coat that fish and fry it up, and heavens to Betsy it was delicious. As much as I tried, I could never recreate my moms fried fish goodness. Once I started cooking, I tried to cook up whatever fish I could find in different ways. And once I had salmon, it quickly became a family favorite.

My preferred way to make fish nowadays is to put it in a foil pack and cook it in the oven. When Kikkoman sent me some of their Soy Sauce, I knew I wanted to incorporate it into some sort of marinade for fish. Kikkoman Soy Sauce is a great, versatile way to add flavor to any meal. I’ve used it with shrimp, chicken and beef and each time I am impressed with the taste.  When I used it on chicken in the slow cooker (recipe coming to the blog soon), the soy sauce became a natural browning sauce and enhanced the flavor tremendously. Kikkoman Soy Sauce is naturally brewed so that is an added benefit!

And let me just tell you, this combo does not disappoint. It works so well together, my taste testers (aka my coworkers) raved about this dish and one even said it was the best thing I’ve brought to the office. The entire dish comes together in less than 20 minutes and the flavors are unbelievable in that short amount of time.

You can also make this on the grill in the foil packet or in a fish basket or grill pan. Try it and you will be surprised at the deliciousness of this dish.

Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Salmon Foil Packets


3 Tbsp Kikkoman Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Brown sugar
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp Minced garlic
1 1/2 lb. Salmon fillets
Garlic powder
Black pepper
Aluminum Foil


Preheat oven to 425.

In a small bowl, add Soy Sauce, brown sugar, honey, oil, and minced garlic. Whisk all ingredients together to combine.

Place two pieces of foil on top of each other for each salmon fillet. Gather the sheets so they are raised on all sides (to prevent any marinade from dripping out).

If your fillets are large, you can cut them in half. Season fillets with garlic powder and black pepper.

Drizzle marinade evenly over salmon fillets.

Gather the long ends of the foil and fold down. Fold in the short ends to form a packet.

Place packets on a cookie sheet. Place in the oven and bake for about 18 minutes.

Nutella & Andes Mints Crescents

If someone told me I had to cook with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls every day, I’d say sign me up! They are so versatile and can be used to make something savory or sweet.

When I was in the grocery store a while back, I saw this bag of Andes Mints baking chips. This brought back memories of eating at Olive Garden and the mints they’d give you after every meal. Oh I loved them. Sure you could buy them but somehow I never did. That taste was reserved for eating out.

So when I saw the baking chips at the store recently, I immediately bought them to try out on a crescent roll. With the combo of the hazelnut spread, it’s the perfect sweet treat.

Growing up my mom used to make skillet potatoes all the time. When she would add okra to them, oh it was such a treat. Some people get turned off of okra because of the slimy factor. And I admit, it can be a bit slimy, but with this dish you don’t get that feeling. […]

Banana Cream pudding holds a special place in my heart. It’s one of my mom’s specialty pies that she always makes. I could eat one of her pies all by myself. Being a foodie though, I’m always looking at what other people are cooking up. When I saw on Pinterest that people used Pepperidge Farm […]

Usually this type of dessert is only served around Thanksgiving in my house. However, my local grocery store has this one on the salad buffet and I have to get it every time I drop in for their salad bar. Every. Time. Like I am upset if they don’t have it. And of course, the […]

Now that the weather has turned warmer, what are you craving? For me the warmer weather always brings to mind the beach and fruity drinks. Whenever I have an adult beverage these days, it is usually something sweet. In my younger days, however, I enjoyed a good tequila shot every once in a while. But […]
