I have been making this for years, I'm glad I checked to see if it was already posted. You can use any combination of vegetables you have on hand. Green beans are a good addition but will need tro be blanched first. Even sticks of cucumber are great, especially if you don't have zucchini. Artichoke hearts work well, too. It's a great, healthy, simple dish. Use foil if you don't have parchment.

This was AMAZING! Big thanks to bluemoon downunder the lemon and garlic added so much to this dish. This was my first experiment with cooking in parchment, something I WILL be doing again. Really enjoyed the spaghetti as a base. Despite the prep-I will be making this one again, thanks for posting!

DH cooked this for himself on a day that I got home late so the evidence and opportunity was well and truly gone as far as a photo was concerned :) DH’s review is that this was nice but not too special, that he would be perfectly happy to see it added to the family cookbook and that he would like to eat this every now and again : a little less often than a 4 or 5 star reviewed recipe. In the meantime he enjoyed his meal and liked trying out a new recipe on his own. Please see my rating system, a 3 star rating from me DOESN’T mean that this is in any way a bad recipe, so a lovely 3 stars. Thanks !!!

Tender, flavoursome and a very healthy way to cook the salmon. An excellent recipe for family meals or for dinner parties. I used aluminium foil, fresh dill, baby carrots, canned asparagus (because I'd forgotten to buy some fresh!) and I added 4 cloves of minced garlic (scattered evenly over the salmon pieces). I also added the juice from one lemon. You could make the recipe up to the end of step 7 earlier in the day, then place the salmon pouches in the oven just before you're ready to serve them. We love salmon, and we loved it cooked this way, and served with Crispy Garlic Lemon Potatoes Crispy Garlic Lemon Potatoes. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Kate.
