  • 3 1/2 salmon filets (approximately 5 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons lime fresco sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper, coarsely ground
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced

1. Place salmon in a glass baking dish. Season with 1 Tbsp sea salt, ½ Tbsp pepper, ginger and lime zest.

2. Mix vegetables in a bowl with 2 Tbsp Lime Oil, 1 Tbsp sea salt and ½ Tbsp pepper.

3. Cut three sheets of aluminum foil 10 x 16 in. Lightly oil the foil and distribute vegetable mixture onto half of the sheet. Top with salmon and drizzle with remaining Lime Oil. Top with 2 basil leaves per packet. Fold foil into rectangular package, crimping all edges to seal. (Salmon can be refrigerated up to 12 hours prior to cooking.)
