Salmon and Spinach in Parchment from Everyday Food

To check if the salmon is cooked through, unfold the center seam of just one packet and take a peek. If the fish needs a few more minutes, tightly rewrap the packet so you won't loose any moisture in the oven.

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 cup(s) baby spinach (8 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) grated orange zest
  • 3 oranges peeled, cut into 1/4 " thick rounds
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (1 1/2 lbs. total)
  • 2-inch piece(s) fresh ginger peeled, cut into thin strips
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • coarse salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Divide spinach among four 16-inch-long pieces of parchment paper. Top with orange zest and orange slices, salmon, ginger, and shallots; season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil.

2. Bring long ends of paper together and fold down 3 times to make a seam. Tuck ends underneath to secure.

3. Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until packets are puffed and salmon is cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer packets to plates, pull open and serve immediately.
