Assorted vegetables of choice
1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs of choice
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
4 tsp white wine (optional)

3. Arrange 1 cup of prepared veggies in each parchment bag.


4. Top with salmon fillet (skin side down), herbs, seasonings, lemon juice, lemon zest and white wine.


5. Seal parchment bag by folding at the opening.

(If using parchment paper, crimp around the edges to create a sealed pocket.)

Once cooked, remove bag from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes.


7. Once rested, cut open and enjoy!
