Teriyaki Salmon with Asian Greens

Teriyaki Salmon with Asian Greens Foil Packet Recipe:


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 cups Asian greens (baby bok choy, spinach, or kale)
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Cooked white rice (optional, for serving)


  1. Preheat your campfire or outdoor grill to medium heat.
  2. Tear off four large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, approximately 12 inches (30 cm) each. Place two sheets on top of each other to create a double layer for added durability.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, and grated ginger to create the marinade.
  4. Lay one salmon fillet on each foil packet, slightly off-center to leave room for the Asian greens.
  5. In a mixing bowl, toss the Asian greens with sesame oil and vegetable oil until lightly coated.
  6. Divide the Asian greens between the foil packets, arranging them around the salmon fillets.
  7. Pour the teriyaki marinade over the salmon and Asian greens, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  8. Fold the foil over the ingredients to create a well-sealed packet, ensuring there are no openings for steam to escape.
  9. Place the foil packets directly on the campfire grates or on the preheated grill. Cook for approximately 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  10. Carefully remove the foil packets from the heat using heat-resistant gloves or tongs.
  11. Allow the packets to cool for a few minutes before carefully opening them. Be cautious of the hot steam when opening the packets.
  12. Serve the Teriyaki Salmon with Asian Greens straight from the foil packets, optionally over cooked white rice, and drizzle with any remaining teriyaki sauce from the packet.
