Servings 1 packet


  • 1 6-8oz salmon filet
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp oilve oil
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 tsp agave
  • 1/2 birds eye chili, thinly sliced
  • 10 brussels sprouts, sliced thinly or shaved with a mandolin


  • Preheat oven to 200C/395F.
  • Tear off two large sheets of aluminum foil and stack them on top of eachother.
  • Place the salmon filet in the center of the sheets and pull edges up around, creating a boat to catch your sauce.
  • Pour over the coconut aminos, olive oil, and agave. Add the ginger and sprinkle over the chilis.
  • Lay the brussels* (see recipe note) over the top of the salmon and seal up the boat by bringing all sheets together and rolling to seal.
  • Place the sealed foil packet in the oven for 15-18 minutes, depending on size. My filets were 8oz so I do the full 18 minutes, but a 6oz portion you might check around 16 minutes. Tested with a fork, the salmon should be pink, tender, and flaky.
  • Remove brussels and salmon from foil to a plate. Pour remaining sauce from the packet over everything.
  • Finish with fresh crack of black pepper.


* You can use broccolini, asparagus, or green beans instead of Brussels sprouts here with the same delicious effect.
