So sorry I have been M.I.A but midterms will do that to a girl! But I am all done and hopefully did well on all of them. Also I’m very excited because my first graduate school spring break is next week! Wahoo! Never too old to enjoy a spring break right? With bathing suit season just around the corner I’ve been trying my best to eat healthy and work out. I am currently 14 days into a squat and ab challenge. Its really not that bad! I like it though because I’m sore after every workout so I know its working! 🙂
I also gave up all red meat for Lent. The last few years I have given up burgers, fries, and soda but this year I wanted a bigger challenge. With that being said I am exploring new recipes to enjoy these next 40 days. Lucky for me, we learned how to make a super easy fish yesterday in class. I would love to share this delicious and quick recipe with you!
Parchment Paper Salmon and Veggies
Ingredients (1 serving)
1 sheet of parchment paper
1 filet of salmon (or other desired fish)
1/3 cup of carrots
1/3 cup tomatoes
1/3 cup celery
1/3 cup red onion
1-2 slices of lemon
1 tablespoon of butter (or 1 teaspoon of olive oil)
pinch of salt & pepper
pinch of dill
1/4 cup white wine
1. Begin by pre-heating your oven to 375°F. Fold Parchment paper in half and prepare to cut in heart shape using a sharp knife. I find it easiest to outline with a pencil.
2. Once paper is cut place all your veggies and filet of fish in the middle of the paper but avoiding the folded area (you will need this area to fold properly). Place 1-2 slices of lemon on top of the fish. I personally love the extra lemony taste so I put 2 slices.
3. Fold the parchment paper over the fish and fold the edges together. Last step is pouring the white wine in the bag and finish sealing it together.
This dish is SUPER easy to make and will impress all your guests! And the best part is you can make it in advance. The packets may be made up to 3 hours ahead and refrigerated until ready to bake for your guests.
Hope you enjoyed learning how to make this delicious fish! Let me know if you make it and what you think. Also share with me what you gave up for Lent! I love hearing from my readers! 🙂
