I'd had a long day today, and was not feeling that great when I got home to make dinner. Unfortunately my husband had a longer day than me and needed to eat. I opened the fridge, debated the leftover turkey burgers, then peered behind them, begrudgingly acknowledging the fantastically on-sale, wild-caught Alaskan salmon that needed to be cooked soon. Crap. I scrambled around in some books and came across this recipe for salmon and green beans baked in parchment. Damn I love Martha Stewart sometimes. Just put everything in some paper, fold it up, and cook it. Easy enough. May I puff up my feathers for a second to say that I had everything ready right when he walked in the door AND managed to use up a few lemons. Huzzah!
This one's a healthy bundle of joy in your face that's easy to make and tastes amazing. Cooking in parchment paper is not only a healthy alternative to pan-frying, but it is also a SUPER easy cleanup in both prep and consumption. Just plop the little parchment envelopes on a plate and voila! I haven't tried it with farmed salmon ( I'm scared to because this spoiled me), but I imagine it's good.
