What if you had a fool-proof way to cook fish, would you use it? I just did. Parchment people. Parchment is the answer to perfect fish. It bakes the fish thoroughly without burning and it keeps the fish moist.
Salmon in Parchment (Serves 2)
- 2 Salmon filets, rinsed and patted dry
- Olive Oil
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dry dill
- 1 lemon, cut into 8 thin wheels
- 2 large piece of parchment paper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees, set rack in the middle of your oven.
- In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, and dill. Stir to combine and set aside.
- Set salmon filets on separate pieces of parchment paper and brush lightly with olive oil.
- Take your salt, pepper, and dill combination and sprinkle evenly over each salmon filet.
- Top filets with 4 lemon wheels each.
- Fold parchment into a packet around the fish and make sure it is snug enough to keep all liquids in.
- Set both parchment packets on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon flakes. You may need to open one packet to check.
- Serve with rice, asparagus, or potatoes. Enjoy!
