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.
