Serves: 2


  • 2 sockeye salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 2 pieces parchment paper
  • 1 green onion
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme



Preheat the oven to 425 °F.

Cut carrots into very thin strips (julienne). Slice half a lemon into rings. Chop thyme and rosemary. Thinly slice the green portion of green onion.


Fold parchment paper in half and cut it into a heart shape. Lightly brush right half of parchment heart with olive oil, then place carrots, lemon slices, and garlic on that half of heart.


Place sockeye on top of that, and sprinkle herbs, 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon paprika and fresh ground pepper. Seal each packet by folding over the left half of the heart and folding 1⁄2-inch straight folds along the edge of the heart. 


Bake for 9-11 min., depending on thickness of salmon. Rest for a few minutes before serving.
