I’ve done tilapia in a foil packet before, but this time I wanted to use the grill and more veggies. Instead of making individual packets, I made a large one. The fish and vegetables cooked perfectly in just 15-20 minutes. Even though the foil was charred around the edges, the food didn’t burn at all.
Dinner time was creeping up on me and I had no plan. Only four of us would be home on that night. Usually, when Jim is gone we have pancakes but that didn’t sound good. I wanted something fast and easy, but different. Inspiration came from one bag of salmon fillets in the freezer, which isn’t enough for 6 of us, but perfect for 4. When I spied the bottle of sesame seed oil in the pantry, I knew I was on to something good.
I decided to grill the salmon in foil packets with a simple, flavorful sauce made with soy sauce and sesame seed oil.
