Healthy Salmon Dinner

No Comments | Written on January 8, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

Would you believe this healthy salmon dinner can be made in under 5 minutes…in the microwave?!

It’s true!  This easy and elegant dish is made “en papillote” or in a parchment bag.

“En papillote” is a fancy way of saying a dish is cooked by steaming it inside parchment paper bag.  You can make one easily out of a square of parchment paper and folding it closed.  This is a very healthy food preparation technique if you are looking to keep some of those New Year’s resolutions!
