Herby salmon parcels

Sharing is caring!

A healthy, tasty and quick salmon recipe that’s great for a midweek meal.

You can make up the herby salmon parcels in just a few minutes, they cook in just 20 minutes and they taste amazing.

Lay a sheet of kitchen foil onto a baking tray, lightly spritz with oil, lay on the salmon, top with lots of fresh herbs, I use basil, dill and coriander. Seal the foil into a parcel and bake.

Make it your way…

  • Switch the fish for any you like.
  • Try different combinations of herbs.
  • Add a smattering of pesto or thai curry paste.

Cooks tips…

  • You can make these parcels up in the morning and just cook when you get home from work later that day.
  • Serve with rice, potatoes or even slide them into toasted ciabatta rolls with a dollop of lemon mayonnaise. It’s one of my favourite easy salmon recipes.
