Salmon cooked "en papillote" is simply salmon cooked in parchment paper! This method of cooking steams the fish while it bakes in the oven, which keeps it very moist. Cooking times will vary depending on what variety of salmon you are using. Pictured here is a two pound wild Coho fillet. King salmon will take longer to cook than Coho, while Sockeye salmon may only take about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve salmon with steamed vegetables and a simple green salad tossed with a lemon vinaigrette.

2 pounds wild salmon fillets
1 small lemons thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoons sea salt
¼ teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoons dried thyme
3 cloves garlic chopped
4 tablespoons butter
