Total Time 25minutes
1/2lbpiece of salmon
1package of fresh dill
juice of 1/2 a lemon
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut long rectangles of parchment paper for however many servings of fish you plan to prepare. I usually just do one long rectangle for my husband and I to share.
Lay the parchment paper on a sheet pan, and lay the zucchini and sliced shallots on one half of the paper. Season liberally with salt and pepper, and toss it well with your fingers to coat evenly. Add the salmon, and season it with salt and pepper as well. Throw the dill on top and squeeze the lemon juice evenly over the ingredients.
Seal the parchment paper well by repeatedly folding little sections over each other, taking care to make sure it is well sealed. You don’t want any steam to escape.
Bake for 15-25 minutes, depending on the thickness and size of your salmon. If you have a thinner salmon, bake for less time, and if you have a thicker salmon, aim for the 25 minutes. Tear open the parchment paper at the table, enjoy the aromas, and dig in! Enjoy.
