In the video, John mentioned that he would tell us in his blog how we could possibly get free parchment paper. I searched all over the place and can't find any reference to such a blog. Can you give me some help? I use rolled parchment paper, but it isn't the width of his paper sheets.

Love how easy this is and that you can include veggies and potatoes too! I usually broil my salmon, but will be trying parchment next time!

This salmon looks delicious, but I would not use bleached(white) parchment paper. I use unbleached(brown) for health reasons.
