      We used two fillets of salmon for a total of 3 lbs (I love leftover salmon to use in other recipes). It was so cool cooking this in newspaper - what an adventure! I just had to trust it would turn out okay and it was great! I did about 20 minutes per side. When I turned it over I wrapped another section of wet newspaper around to reinforce the wrapper. Next time I would cut fennel amount in half - not my favorite spice and it was pretty strong. Otherwise very very good! ZWT 2007

      We tried this today on the barbecue. We used a piece of fish that was much smaller and reduced the cooking time. Unfortunatly it wasn't completely cooked, but the piece that was cooked was outstanding. We will definitely try it again in the near future and cook it a little longer and then I just know it will be juicy, moist and delicious! This is a keeper, I even plan on trying it in the oven in aluminium foil, but it ptobably won't get that smoky flavour that way. Thanks for posting!
