Summer Veggie Parchment Salmon

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 2 6-oz. Sockeye salmon fillets
  • 2 small summer squash and/or zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced into half moons
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 slices lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Tear off two large pieces of parchment paper and fold in half to crease. Open and lay flat.

    On one side of the crease, place half of the zucchini, cherry tomatoes, red onion, dill, and one lemon slice. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place salmon fillet on top and drizzle with lemon juice. Season with additional salt and pepper. Repeat process for second parchment paper with remaining ingredients.

    Fold the parchment paper over the salmon, and seal the sides with small pleats. The finished result should resemble a half-moon shape. Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until the salmon is opaque. Serve immediately.
