Parchment Baked Salmon

Why Parchment Baked Salmon?

Baking fish en papillote, as the French would say, has many benefits.

The parchment pouch allows the fish to steam gently, making it retain more moisture. In other words, it won’t get all dried out. It’s also cooking in its own juices, so it retains more flavor.

Bonus: clean up is super easy. You just throw out the paper instead of spending lots of time scrubbing pans.
