Let’s cook something really really easy today, shall we? 😉 This Baked Salmon Parcel is really convenient to prepare, whether it’s for one person or for the whole family. And the best thing I like about this recipe is, clean-up is absolutely minimal. 😀
May not be the prettiest looking dish (haha!) but it’s totally homely, healthy and wholesome.
Choose The Best Fresh Salmon
For this dish, I highly recommend that you use fresh salmon instead of those frozen ones as I always find the latter too fishy for steaming or poaching. And go for the mid-body fillets (better still, belly cuts) instead of tail fillets as they contain more fats i.e. omega-3.
To make the parcels, you will need parchment paper and aluminium foil so have them ready in approximately 30cm x 30cm squares.
For the vegetables, I had an assortment of carrot, broccoli, yellow onions and peas. You can always swap them with other vegetables like cauliflower, okra, asparagus, etc. Can also add mushrooms if you like a little more variety.
This Salmon Parcel is not heavy-handed with seasonings so all we need are just lemon juice, salt and pepper. This way, we can keep everything clean and fresh-tasting. Absolutely healthy and delicious. 😉
