Salmon en Papillote

Salmon en Papillote is a fantastic weeknight dinner. It takes a maximum of 25 minutes, is healthy, and actually looks pretty fancy! En Papillote means 'in parchment' and cooks the food using steam.

1) A salmon fillet for each person you are feeding
2) A lemon or lime, sliced thinly
3) Olive Oil
4) Fresh dill (or dry dill or salmon seasoning)
5) Asparagus
6) Parchment Paper (foil may work too)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut a piece of parchment paper about 1 foot long for each salmon fillet.
Fold parchment paper in half.
Place cut and washed asparagus on either half of the parchment.
Place salmon fillet on top of asparagus.

Drizzle salmon and asparagus with olive oil.
Sprinkle with dill (or choice of seasoning).
Place sliced lemon or lime over salmon fillet.

Fold the empty half of the parchment paper over the salmon.
Fold over edges of parchment paper to make a sealed package.
Place parchment packets on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for about 20 to 22 minutes.

Voila! A gorgeous dinner that you didn't have to slave 3 hours in the kitchen to make!
