Salmon and Fresh Veggies in Packets


Serves 2 but just add more packets and more fish if you want to be all neighborly or feed your starving kids.

Things You’re Gonna Need:

2 4oz pieces of salmon, preferably without the skin, unless you are one of those crazy people who like to eat the skin (Flesh Eating Freak!)
1 Tbsp of olive oil
Lots of veggies: Slice up what you got. Pretty much anything works here. I used shredded carrots, chopped red pepper, mushrooms, green beans, and 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic. Any veggies like the beans and carrots that are a bit rigid, give them a quick 2 minute boil.
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Salmon Packets

Whatcha Gotta Do:

  1. Heat your oven up to 350°
  2. Grab your parchment paper and tear off two 14″ square pieces. Fold them in half.
  3. On one side of the crease, add a healthy plop of those veggies.
  4. Put a piece of salmon on top. Salt and pepper as you see fit. Pour some of the olive oil over each pile of packet filling.
  5. Fold the other half of the parchment over the pile and start rolling the open sides to toward the fillings. It should look like a Hostess Fruit-Pie.
  6. Put the packets on a baking tray in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  7. When done, put each packet on a plate. Cut an “X” in the top (Watch out! Hot steamy danger!)
  8. Feel free to top with anything fun if you want like dijon mustard or preserves…or nothing at all. Topless is always good.

Eat it.
