I got this salmon baked in parchment paper recipe from the Homemaker's magazine. I haven't tried it personally but it sure sounds tasty.

This is a good recipe, but I will adjust it for personal preferences. For example, I didn't think the spinach added much - it nearly disappeared, but seemed to increase the liquid. I also think I'd rather use white wine. Overall, though, a good and healthy recipe, which I will enjoy tinkering with. Thank you for posting.
