Hmmmm, can foil packets be considered one pot meals? They’re definitely one dish meals! This teriyaki honey salmon is a foil packet meal. It has not only your wonderfully healthy fish proteins, but it also has your mixed veggies underneath, and it’s all packaged so sweetly in foil.
Meals like this are so simple! They take just a little over 30 minutes. This sauce is homemade. If you wanted to cut out the time, and you had bottled teriyaki on hand, you could use that as well. This sauce looks pretty yummy though!
I grew up with one dish meals. Those are meals where everything you could possibly need or want in a meal is in the same bowl all mixed together. I’m talking pesto pasta which had shrimp or keilbasa, pasta, broccoli, mushrooms, and pesto! Or maybe a stuffed eggplant. The list goes on. My mom wasn’t the best with side dishes, and neither am I. What I might do for this meal though, especially since my SO is such a rice addict, it make some rice to serve along side.

IngredientsHoney Teriyaki Sauce
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari)
- 5 Tbsp water, divided
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp minced ginger
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 1/2 tsp cornstarchSalmon and Veggies
- 4 (6 oz) skinless, salmon fillets
- 4 cups broccoli florets (chop small so they cook through)
- 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced carrots
- 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 green onions, chopped
- Sesame seeds, for garnish
- Cooked brown or white rice, for serving
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- For the sauce:
- In a small saucepan whisk together soy sauce, 3 Tbsp water, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Season lightly with salt as needed. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. In a small bowl whisk together cornstarch with remaining 2 Tbsp water until well combined. Pour into sauce mixture, reduce to medium and allow to boil 1 minute while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 5 – 10 minutes.
- For the salmon and veggies:
- Toss broccoli and carrots with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cut 4 sheets of 14-inch length aluminum foil. Divide broccoli and carrot mixture among sheets layering in center in an even layer. Set aside 1/4 cup of the sauce mixture then brush bottom sides of salmon fillets with a scant tablespoon of the sauce then rotate and place salmon over veggies. Brush tops of salmon with another scant tablespoon of the sauce mixture. Pull sides of foil inward (the short length) and seal then roll edges up (try to leave a little room for heat to circulate, don’t wrap tightly). Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until salmon has cooked through, about 25 minutes. Serve with brown or white rice if desired and remaining sauce.
