2 (5 ounce)
salmon fillets or steaks
frozen green peas
The basics of this recipe are good--it's just needs a touch more.
I watched my French chef sister-in-law make fish in paper pillows and here's what she layered:
1.chopped leeks (I've also used green onion);2.sliced carrots; 3.fish fillet; 4. salt and pepper; 5. herbs--thyme is best; rosemary is wonderful; (I use fresh basil from the garden if possible.)
6. diced tomato; 7. Olive oil drizzled over. Bake in hot oven--550 til liquid is boiling, then reduce heat and bake 20 minutes. 5 minutes before serving, drizzle one tablespoon of whipping cream over fish (only if creme fraiche is not in house.)
Most importantly, Marie says "if the fish is good, the dish is good."
I love salmon, and this is not a bad way to make it. I did make a few changes. I increased the garlic to 1 1/2 teaspoons jarred minced garlic. I also used a liberal amount of lemon juice, and a liberal amount of extra virgin olive oil. I also had trouble making the paper stay folded, so I used a staple in the two top corners. Otherwise, very easy and tasty. It wasn't my favorite way to prepare salmon, but I will definitely make this recipe again.
This recipe was very good. The salmon came out very moist. The only changes I made to the recipe were that I added a sprinkle of salt to each fillet, and in addition to parchment paper, I wrapped a second layer of tinfoil around the first packet to make sure if the parchment didn't open up. 15 minutes was long enough for me, unlike some of the others, however I did use small fillets. I served with hollaindaise sauce. Will be making this again.
This was a good recipe. It could use some more lemon juice. The flavor was very light, but salmon dishes usually are a bit bland. I used butter instead of oil and string beans instead of peas.
This such an easy way to cook salmon you cant go wrong.
Don't laugh - I'm a horrible cook who decided to learn how. This recipe was fantastic!! Finally after 40 years, it went right. Husband (who does not like garlic) and I (who doesn't care for salmon) both agreed this was the best thing served on our table in a long time! Thanks for sharing!
Very good!!!! I baked for an additional 5 minutes and it came out perfect!!! My side dishes were wild rice and steamed carrots w/peas. Such a wonderfully easy and quick dish that satisfies!
I used butter instead of oil, added a bit more lemon juice and used fresh asparagus spears instead of peas. This recipe is an easy, no muss, no fuss meal after a 12 hour work day!
