Salmon in Parchment

12 Nov

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
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, set rack in the middle of your oven.
  2. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, and dill. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. Set salmon filets on separate pieces of parchment paper and brush lightly with olive oil.
  4. Take your salt, pepper, and dill combination and sprinkle evenly over each salmon filet.
  5. Top filets with 4 lemon wheels each.
  6. Fold parchment into a packet around the fish and make sure it is snug enough to keep all liquids in.
  7. 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.
  8. Serve with rice, asparagus, or potatoes. Enjoy!
