Parchment Baked Salmon with Tomato and Basil

17 Apr

Parchment baked is my newly discovered favorite way of cooking.  Parchment paper prevents food from sticking to the pan and makes cleaning a breeze.  The food is cooked in its own juices and you have assurance that it won’t dry out even if a bit overcooked.  It is also a great idea for pot luck when everyone can bring their own “mystery” packets.

Ingredients:

  • .70 lb salmon steak or fillet
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1/4 cup of chopped basil leaves
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Combine, chopped tomato, shallots, garlic, basil leaves and lemon juice into a small bowl.
  2. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
  3. Place salmon fillet in the center of  parchment paper. Drizzle each fillet with 1 teaspoon of the oil and half of the mixed vegetables on top.
  4. Place packages directly on hot baking sheet in oven at 400 F and cook for 20 minutes.
