Sage & Rosemary Salmon in Parchment Paper


It can be easy to cook with fish, it can also strike a cord of frustration when not done properly.  To bake a fantastic fillet, there needs to be a balance of moisture and flakiness, spice and texture.  This recipe is a great way to prepare salmon that breaks the mold of pan frying.  The parchment paper becomes a wonderful pouch for the fish to sit and bake happily in, while it rests next to lemon juice, garlic and fresh herbs.  Here is our idea of a perfect dish to compliment your dinner menu….

This is the simple recipe… 


Salmon fillet

Rosemary sprig

Sage sprig

4 lemon slices

1 clove minced garlic

Baking parchment paper



Olive oil


Add 1 thinly sliced onion


Set oven to 375 degrees.

Place salmon fillet on parchment paper and cover with lemon slices (and their juice), minced garlic, sage, and rosemary.  Salt and pepper as generously as needed and drizzle with olive oil to coat the fillet. Add thin onion slices, if desired. Fold fish in parchment paper until it forms a sealed package (it does not need to be air tight) and place on cookie sheet. Bake fish for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove fish from parchment paper gently and serve.
