Salmon and Rainbow Peppers!



The peppers in the grocery looked so wonderful when I stopped the other day that I decided to make one of our favorite and healthy meals - Salmon and Peppers.  This recipe is SO easy.  I found it years ago on Reynolds Wrap website under "packet cooking."  I don't think it is on the site any longer...so here you go!
2 sheets of Heavy Duty Reynolds Wrap
2 salmon fillets, 4-6 oz. each
2 medium red, yellow, green, or orange peppers
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
1 teaspoon of dried basil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees or grill to medium/high

Wash and cut peppers...I usually use 3 different colors and chop to make the equivalent of two peppers.

Center one salmon fillet on each sheet of heavy duty wrap ( or just double up regular wrap).

Put the pepper pieces around the salmon, then top with 1 Tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with the dried basil.
Wrap the packets up and seal...leaving some room for steam.

I put them on the grill on our patio.  When making the packets in the oven I put them on a baking sheet in case there is any leakage.
Cook for 18 - 20 minutes.
CAREFULLY open the packets...
And serve with rice...I use brown rice.
The color of the peppers goes great with my Fall table...this is set for 6.  You can easily double/triple/? this recipe - it's a great make ahead dish for company.
The napkins are from Kohl's a few years ago.
The place mats are from Dollar Tree.

Table center is a combination of some fresh flowers from the grocery store and silk sunflowers from Dollar Tree.   The place mat under the centerpiece is a place mat from Pier One...there was only one left on a clearance table and it works fine for this purpose.
I always like to have a little take home sweet for guests....I had just made a batch of the Rollo Pretzel bites ( recipe can be found on the Rollo Candy bag) and topped them with pecans and Autumn colored M&M's.  
Put in clear treat bags wrapped with raffia I added some Fall tags that were a printable download from On Sutton Place - Thank you, Ann, for sharing!

Hope you enjoyed the recipe and ideas.  Do you have any easy "packet" recipes to share?   Any good salmon recipes?   Please leave a comment and thanks so much for stopping by Our New Vista ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚
