When my mom was visiting she offered to make salmon in a pouch. It is something she makes almost every time she visits. On this visit she somehow tricked me into making it for her. It went something like this:
Mom: "Kris, I'm going to make salmon pouches tonight."
Me: "That sounds awesome!"
2 hours later.
Mom: "I can't remember how to make the salmon pouches."
Me: "Fine, I'll make them."
She is so sneaky!!!
The salmon turnes out perfect every time. My favorite part is that everyone gets their own little salmon gift to open before they can dive in.
I serve with potato fries and asparagus. This meal is fun and it really brings me out of my dinner rut. Meat is not my favorite thing to cook, hubs usually does it. But this is so easy, that I am always confident it is going to come out perfect every time
