Salmon in parchment with lemon and dill
One of the easiest ways I know to cook fish is enclosed in parchment paper in the oven. Cooking in parchment allows you to layer in whatever flavors you want. It’s a moist heat cooking method that infuses flavor into the fish as it steam cooks in the oven. An additional bonus – no clean up required. For this meal I had beautiful wild BC sockeye salmon. Aromatics of fresh dill, lemon, shallots, salt, pepper, a splash of white wine and a drizzle of olive oil. Seal in a cut out round of parchment paper, folding over and crimping edges to create a seal. Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Couldn’t be easier.
Arthritis Kitchen Tip: Salmon is an excellent source of omega 3. If at all possible buy fresh wild salmon. The texture and flavor is remarkably superior to farmed fish and it is free of any antibiotics or dyes.
