This is my favorite way to cook salmon and can easily be adjusted for one person. My husband only likes his salmon broiled or baked but this I much prefer. Highly recommend this method and recipe.
So glad I found this recipe, as this is now my favoite way to cook salmon. It's very moist and doesnt taste "fishy" at all. It's very quick and simple and healthy as well!
YUM! This was awesome! I've cooked other fishes this way before and was curious to see if anybody else had done it, or if there was a Salmon En Papillote recipe on allrecipes. I'm glad I checked it out. I'd had a huge fillet of Salmon in the freezer for too long. This recipe was fast and that's my favorite kind of recipe.
This was a great recipe for salmon. I usually don't care for lemon with fish but this was very mild. The salmon stayed very moist and was delicious. Served it with New Potatoes with Caper Sauce from this site and we just loved it. Thanks for posting the recipe.
excellent! I got parchment bags at the grocery store. It made it very easy. I added 6 large shrimp( peeled and deveined) to the bag. and A little fresh baby dill.
my husband took a picture of it. it was so pretty! We had brown rice and salad with it. Very Very Good!
This was delicious!
My baking paper sheets were not big enough to go around the salmon and asparagus so I used aluminium foil instead, and needed to cook it for longer, but it turned out great anyway.
I'll definitely make this again!
Moist, and tender lemon salmon. I used my first fresh garden asparagus (better than store bought:) and parchment paper bags that I found at the store. I really liked this as written, DH thought it needed something. But he couldn't tell me what he thought was missing though! I'll play with some old bay for him, maybe a little red pepper or red peper flackes? I'll let you know what he decides it needs. . . Thanks carly!
