Salmon with Fresh Veggies

Using parchment paper is a great way to cook fish without too much mess.

Ingredients:
(2) 4oz. salmon filets
1 zucchini, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
(You can use different veggies, this is just what I used.)
Olive Oil
Lemon, sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Butter
Parchment Paper

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Rip off 2 large pieces of parchment paper and place one piece of fish towards the end of each piece of paper. Place one slice of lemon on top of each piece of fish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with veggies. (You may have a few veggies left over.) Lastly, top with a few small dollops of butter.

Wrap the parchment paper so it forms a packet. Don’t wrap it too tightly though, you want enough room for the hot air to move around.

Place packets on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

Be careful of the steam when opening the packets after baking.

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked the fish cooked this way. I like the way the veggies came out too. It was almost like they were steamed.
