Cooking – Salmon all wrapped up

I love salmon and have tried for months to get my boyfriend to eat fish and he has always said no… so today when I asked  him could we have it – as a start of the new regime – he kindly agreed, bit the bullet and said go for it. I knew I had to make it delicious and non-fishy so that any other request for it would be allowed.

Salmon and veg done well –

  • 2 handfulls of baby bak choy – chopped length ways
  • 1 red pepper – thinly sliced
  • 1 handful of snow peas
  • 2 salmon fillets (if cooking for 1 then only one fillets and reduce the veg as well)
  • half a red onion finely diced
  • 3 small cloves of garlic sliced
  • 1.5 thumbs of ginger – peeled and sliced into batons
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil
  • 1/4 cup of tamari (or low sodium soy sauce)
  • ground pepper to taste

How I put it together –

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Get all your veg ready and chopped
  3. Mix up the ingredients from the onions down in a bowl and set aside
  4. Tear off as many long pieces of parchment paper as you have salmon fillets and fold in half (i’d say 60cm total – 30cm when folded)

Arrange the veg on the parchment paper with the salmon on top

With the salmon fillets parallel to you bring the paper edges together and roll and fold, then fold up the ends
