Healthy Version of Tin Foil Dinners

Last night we had a yummy and healthy version of tin foil dinners. I have always loved tin foil dinners with hamburger, potatoes, onions, and carrots. Last night, I found a recipe online that inspired me to come up with this version that is way better and healthier. These are the ingredients that I used:

Salmon Fillet (I used the cheap, frozen version that I got on sale at Smiths)
Asparagus Spears
Zuchinni and Yellow Squash
Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper

I cut up the veggies and placed them with 1 salmon fillet in individual tin foil pieces. Then I poured lemon juice over the top and added salt and pepper. Then I cooked it for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees. It took less than 5 minutes to make and it was so yummy. We ate it with brown rice which is my new favorite thing to eat. I don't know why I ever ate white rice when brown rice is so good and so good for you. I like to add a little bit of chicken base and garlic to the rice cooker while it is cooking for more flavor.

I love finding new healthy dinner ideas. Even Peter liked it!

That does sound good. I am glad you are eating brown rice. You might as well while you can and before Laura gets big enough to express her opinion. My healthy thing lately is adding oat bran, wheat germ and milled flax seed to almost everything that I use white flour in. I do need to try the brown rice thing.
