Salmon in Parchment

Salmon in parchment has got to be one of the fastest, healthy, elegant meals there is.  My husband loves salmon and I often make this for him when he comes home for lunch.  Serve it with some couscous or rice and vegetables and it's a very light healthy meal.  It's impressive enough for company served with a nice glass of chardonnay.

Here's what you'll need for each salmon filet

Salmon in Parchment
(printable recipe)

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees

1 salmon filet
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 - 1 tsp. dried dill
3 lemon slices
1 tsp. capers
olive oil for drizzling
square piece of parchment paper

Fold your parchment paper in half then open and lay your salmon filet in the middle close to the crease.

Spread Dijon mustard over salmon.

Sprinkle with dill.

Lay lemon slices on salmon, top with capers and a sprinkle of dill.. Drizzle with a little olive oil.

Fold parchment over salmon and starting at one corner, fold and crease on an angle going around the salmon until you get to the end.

Twist the end and fold under.

Place on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon. Place on serving plate and cut open being careful of the steam.  Serve right in parchment.  Beautiful!
