Foil Broil Mushroom and Mayo Salmon

 I like fish. I particularly like salmon. I like easy ways of cooking salmon.  Broiling salmon in aluminum foil is about as easy as it gets.  It almost cleans itself up.

This is a vaguely Japanese kind of preparation and a pretty good base to riff on. Scaled for a single serving, adjust as necessary for the amount of salmon you end up buying.


  • 2.5 oz (70g) Salmon Filet
    • I mean, should be more like 70g fillet
  • 2oz Sliced Shitaki Mushrooms
    • This would probably better with Enoki mushrooms.
  • 1 tbsp (18ml) Sake
    • Nothing special, whatever is inexpensive will do.
  • 1 tbsp (18ml) Soy Sauce
    • I tend to use low sodium soy sauce or no-sodium substitutes.
  • 1 tbsp (15g) Mayonnaise
    • I use light mayo or go fancy with wasabi mayo/aioli.


  • Pre heat the broiler to 425˚F (or 220˚C)
  • Create a "foil boat", put the fish in it.
  • Cover the fish with the mushroom goodness.
  • Spoon the mayo stuff over the top of the fish and mushrooms.
  • Spoon the soy and sake over the fish and mushrooms.
  • Close the "foil boat", put it in the oven for 15 minutes or so.
  • Enjoy!
