Don't be afraid to bake salmon in parchment. It's a great method for keeping your expensive fish from drying out if it's a minute or two too long in the oven. The hardest thing to do is to judge when it's done, due to the variations in size of filets. Mine were a little more than 1 inch thick in the largest part, and alas, 20 minutes was a tad too long. They were still edible, and we enjoyed the combination of flavors. Thanks for the idea!
Simple, moist and delicious - perfect for any diet!
