PREP FISH + VEGETABLES
Season coho salmon fillets with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix onion, garlic, carrots, radishes, squash, cumin, thyme, paprika, salt, pepper, and olive oil until veggies are evenly coated in oil and herbs.
Cut 4, 18-inch sheets of aluminum foil. Divide veggies into four equal portions and spread a single layer in the center of each sheet of foil.
Place salmon fillets on top of veggies along with a pat of butter. Seal foil packets tightly.
To bake: Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until salmon begins to flake.
To grill: Heat grill to medium-high. Place foil packets on grill, cook for 12-15 minutes.
Gently slide veggies and salmon from foil packets onto plates. Serve each with a drizzle of olive oil and a few sprigs of fresh parsley.
Note: We like our veggies a little on the crisp side. But if you prefer veggies more well-done, lightly sauté them just prior to wrapping in foil.
