HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR FOIL PACKET EXPERIENCE:

USE 100% PURE COCONUT MCT OIL: Instead of cooking your fish in olive oil or coconut oil, try MCT oil! MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, an essential fatty acid, that can increase metabolism, boost endurance and mood, lower cholesterol, and lower blood sugar levels. It’s a tasteless, odorless oil making it great for cooking!

GRILL IT OR BAKE IT: If you don’t have access to a grill, this recipe can be cooked in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400. Follow the same directions when preparing the aluminum foil packet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque throughout.

CHOOSE YOUR FISH: Though we recommend using salmon (can you say nutritional powerhouse?!), you can swap out the salmon for halibut or cod if you prefer.

ADJUST YOUR SERVINGS: As is, this recipe makes four portions. However, if you’re making dinner for just one or two, simply scale the ingredients for the appropriate portion size.

ALL THE MCT OIL: Our MCT Oil is good to the last drop, but what about when you’re out of drops? When you order Natural Force 100% Pure Coconut MCT Oil, choose the “Subscribe & Save 20%” option to have your MCT Oil auto-shipped every 1-3 months and save 20% off your order!

Ingredients

  • 4 4 oz Wild Caught Salmon Fillets
  • 2 Zucchini Squash, cut into ⅛ inch slices
  • 2 Yellow Squash, cut into ⅛ inch slices
  • 2 Shallots, diced
  • 4 Lemons (reserve 2 for squeezing over the salmon)
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Pepper
  • 4 tbsp Natural Force 100% Pure Coconut MCT Oil
  • 4 Sprigs of Rosemary

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Cut vegetables. Cut squash and dice shallots. Cut 2 lemons into thin slices.

  2. Lay out 4 square pieces of aluminum foil. In the middle of the foil square, add squash in a vertical line. Top with shallot and lemon slices.

  3. Place salmon on top of the vegetables. Rub MCT oil over salmon and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze ½ lemon over 1 salmon.

  4. To close, fold aluminum foil over salmon; sealing the open sides, like wrapping a gift. 

  5. Place on a grill or grill pan. Grill until the salmon is opaque throughout, about 7 minutes on each side. The salmon will flake with a fork when it is cooked throughout. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil*, Grill (Charcoal or Propane)

* Parchment paper can be used if there is no aluminum foil available. The wrapping technique is the same.

VARIATIONS

TO BAKE: Preheat the oven to 400. Follow the same directions when preparing the aluminum foil packet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque throughout.
