Parchment Salmon

IMG_1163IMG_1174 This meal was super delicious and so simple. Everyone just needs to make it because I can’t put into words how great and easy it is to make and how sophisticated it is to the taste buds. Not to mention I love to open presents and it was like opening a present for dinner.

What you’ll need:

1 bag of small red potatoes from Trader Joes, sliced 1/4 inch thick

3 gloves of garlic, chopped

5 filets of salmon (I bought a whole side filet at Costco, and then cut it to the size I wanted)

2 tablespoons fresh dill

5 scallions trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 package of asparagus from Trader Joes trimmed and halved

Butter, olive oil, salt and pepper, white wine, lemon wedges if desired on finished product


Heat oven to 400. Make 5 square sheets out of your parchment (mine just happened to be 15in x 15 in). Toss sliced potatoes with chopped garlic, a tablespoon of olive oil and salt and pepper. Place the potatoes evenly in the center of each of the parchment sheets. Rinse salmon and pat dry with paper towels. Place each piece on top of the potatoes.  Season with salt and pepper. Add the dill, scallions, and asparagus. Place 1/2 tablespoon of butter on top of each piece of salmon. Pour about a tablespoon of wine over the fish.  Fold the parchment over so it makes a triangle, then start folding on one end and do overlapping folds until you get to the other side (see the above picture for what your parchment packages should look like). Place them on some cookie sheets and bake for 25 minutes.  To serve, simply place a packet on a plate, open, and enjoy (you can eat it right out of the parchment).


Make this. Trust me.
