Ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon fillets see note 1
  • 1 cup instant rice
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup teriyaki sauce divided (see note 2)
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (either paste from a tube or grated ginger)
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets about one large head
  • sesame seeds for garnishing
  • green onions for garnishing

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the rice, chicken stock, 1/2 cup of the teriyaki sauce, chili pasted, ginger, and garlic cloves.
  • Rip off four square foil pieces.  Place one fourth of the rice mixture in the center of each piece.  Top with a salmon fillet and 1/2 cup of broccoli.
  • Top the salmon and broccoli with 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce (you will need 1/4 cup total to do all four packets.
  • Fold the sides of the foil packets up, lining them up together. Fold that down over itself a few times. Then fold up the ends.  The packet should be fully sealed.  Repeat with the other packets.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Serve, adding more teriyaki sauce on top as desired and garnishing with sesame seeds and green onions.

Notes

  1. You can either ask your butcher to cut a pound of salmon into four equal pieces or you can grab a pound worth and cut it yourself.
  2. There are many different types of Teriyaki Sauce on the market. I used Kikkomon. You want to use one that is more like a liquid than say a BBQ sauce. If you get a thicker brand, you will need to add more chicken sauce (probably 1/4 cup) to account or the lack of liquid.
