These Mediterranean Salmon Foil Packets are one of our favorite healthy meals for busy weeknights. They are fresh, flavorful and loaded with fiber and tons of protein from the additional cup of pulses I added.
Are you guys on the pulses train yet? You can find pulses everywhere these days. They are known as dry peas, chickpeas, lentils and beans.
My kids are big fans and I love incorporating them into our meals whenever I can. They’re hearty, low in fat and high in protein, fiber, vitamins, as well as minerals which will help you feel full longer.
Adding a 1/2 cup serving of pulses into your diet 3x per week is so easy! You can sign up for the 4 week challenge by heading over to Half-Cup Habit, and check out all of the recipes.
How to Assemble these Mediterranean Salmon Foil Packets
- Divide the salmon onto four 18 x 12 sheets of foil (you can also add a layer of parchment paper inside the foil if you prefer using parchment paper instead)
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the lentils, vegetables and shrimp with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper and dried herbs.
- Arrange evenly around the salmon then wrap tightly in foil.
You can toss the foil packets on the grill while you’re camping or cook them in the oven on a busy weeknight.
