  1. KIDS: The writing in bold is for you. ADULTS: The rest is for you. Make the sauce and marinade. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy, honey, garlic and mirin and set aside.

  2. Cut out some squares of foil. Using scissors, cut out 4 squares of foil, each about 30cm square. Brush each piece of foil with a little oil and bring the edges of the foil up a little.

  3. Fill your parcels. Place a couple of broccoli stems on each one, then sit a salmon fillet on top and scatter over the ginger.

  4. Spoon over the sauce. Spoon the sauce over each salmon fillet and drizzle with a little sesame oil, if you like.

  5. Close the parcels. Fold over the edges of the foil together to seal and place the parcels on a baking sheet. Can be prepared up to 1 day ahead.

  6. Cook the parcels. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Get your child to place the parcels in the oven for 15-20 mins, but ensure an adult removes them, then leave to stand for a few mins. Serve each parcel on a plate and let each person open it themselves. Serve with spring onions and sesame seeds for scattering over, and some rice on the side.

lightly blanched the broccoli first and also added fine green beans and some asparagus. Used this recipe to serve 2 but only used 2 fillets of salmon. I have also used half a large salmon and half a large cod loin portion per parcel to give a bit of variety. Does also work well with chicken as suggested in the tips

After years of using BBC Good Food recipes I've finally created an account to say this recipe was absolutely brilliant! So easy, so tasty and minimal washing up! Would that there were more like this. Tips wise, definitely make the same amount of marinade for 2 people, increase it if serving more and don't scrimp on the spring onions, sesame seeds or broccoli. I also added some thinly sliced carrot to the parcels which was beautiful. Definitely making many more times again.

Made this for one and just halved the marinade which was just right. Don't think this recipe has enough marinade for 4, would need to double. Flavor was lovely, i added my spring onions into the parcel, and steamed my veg separately. Takes 20 mins to cook the salmon, 15 wouldn't have been enough.

In a bid to eat omega-3 foods, I decided to try this with 2 small boys for Guinea pigs. Big thumbs up (other than ginger which was a bit spicy). I think it needs 20 mins in oven as mine was a bit less cooked in the middle (and the broccoli wasn't quite cooked through). Served with cumin-seed sweet potato fries. Think this will go in my binder!

Very flavoursome even though we didn't use the optional ingredients, and the fish stayed wonderfully moist. We used the same amount of marinade for only 2 people. Definitely making again.

So simple and so nice! Absolutely loved it. I'd recommend more broccoli though, and I put the spring onions in the parcels to cook them. I also found the marinade a bit too sweet, so I added more soy sauce.

Excellent recipe! Easy to make and very nice to eat. Maybe a little too sweet but that's just a matter of taste. When I made it, I cooked all the spring onions in the parcel with the fish just because I really don't get along with raw onions but I thought it was great this way also. I can definitely see myself making it again.

Is the calorie content just for the salmon dish or does it include the rice?

Thanks for your question. No the rice is not included in the calorie count. As a tip for the future just be aware that ingredients that have "to serve" by them, like the rice, spring onions and sesame seeds are not included in the calorie count.
