I wish there was a bit more fish in my diet, but I’m put off by price and feel I don’t have the practical skills to prepare and serve most of it properly. However, this recipe appealed because I do like the occasional salmon steak and you can throw everything into the parcel and it’s all done in one, making it the ultimate lazy supper. The addition of the ginger provided just the right amount of interest without overpowering the delicate taste of the salmon and the vegetables were tender.
From the Waitrose Weekend newspaper
Butter (to grease the baking parchment)
2 salmon fillets (preferably without skin)
2cm chunk of fresh ginger
- Preheat the oven to 200C. Cut 2 pieces of baking parchment into 22cm/22cm squares and grease well with the butter. Place on a baking tray.
- Finely slice the leek and carrot and divide between the baking parchments. Place one salmon fillet on each of the vegetable piles, season well, and sprinkle with the finely shredded ginger. Squeeze a ¼ of lemon on each of the fillets.
- Wrap each parcel tightly and bake for 20 minutes or until the fish and salmon are cooked. Serve with noodle flavoured with a little soy sauce.
