So when I recently found myself approaching dinnertime with no plan or clue of what to eat (does that ever happen to you? :) ), I resorted to my trusty super fish. Deciding between a grilled or steamed bite was my next (and final) decision to get some food on the table and in my tummy pronto. I opted for the 'fix it and forget it' steamed preparation and within a matter of minutes, succulent, buttery and perfectly moist salmon was mine for the feasting.
If you're ever in need of a satisfying and healthy meal, that comes together in sheer minutes, I offer you simple, scrumptious salmon.

Salmon in Parchment
I love cooking en papillote, especially seafood, and this salmon is a delicious reminder why.
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs
A "pat" of butter
1 tablespoon of white wine
Parchment for wrapping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Place salmon in the middle of a parchment square and season liberally with salt and pepper. Top with lemon slices, butter and thyme. Drizzle with white wine. Fold parchment into a tight pouch (folding the tops down and twisting the sides, ensuring it's tightly sealed to allow for steaming.) Place pouch on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes (depending on the thickness/size of the fillet.) Remove from the oven, open pouch and enjoy!
