Baking fish in a parcel seals in more of the flavour and goodness, and the new potatoes turn this easy recipe into a substantial meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F Par-boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, until just tender.
  2. Lay out 2 very large, double-thickness squares of baking paper or foil. Drain the potatoes and place on one half of each paper or foil square. Season well, then top each with a salmon fillet and transfer to a baking tray.
  3. In a bowl, mix the scallions, dill and cream. Season, then pour half over 1 fish parcel. Bring the paper or foil over the filling and fold the edges together several times all round to seal. Repeat with the remaining cream mixture and fish parcel. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the salmon is just cooked through and the cream has thickened to a rich sauce.
  4. Serve the salmon parcels on plates with steamed green vegetables on the side and open the parcel when you are ready to eat.
