“DH and I made this for dinner last night and thought it was excellent. Another winner from Keiko O Aoki's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." DH and I doubled the green onions and found the salmon had to cook for significantly longer (about 20 mins) than what was posted in the recipe (though we realize oven heating times vary). This was very easy and required very little prep. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix all marinade ingredients.
  2. Cut salmon into bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a shallow pan, place the fish and add the marinade. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. Thinly slice the green onions at an angle. Remove stems from shiitake mushrooms and cut the tops in half.
  5. In a baking pan, place a sheet of aluminum foil long enough to make a pouch. Place the ingredients on the foil in the following order: green onion on bottom, marinated salmon, and shiitake on top.
  6. Fold the sides and ends of the aluminum foil to make a pouch; make sure to seal tightly so juices don't flow out.
  7. Place inside oven 10-20 minutes at 400 degrees F or until done. Sprinkle with hot pepper flakes and serve.
