These tasty salmon paper parcels are simply steamed with vegetables and seasoning ingredients inside parchment paper. They are a delicious, healthy option for either a family supper or a fancy dinner party.
As a dinner party entree, they are ideal because they can be prepared in advance and then popped into a hot oven when guests arrive.Lime, ginger, cumin and sesame oil add extra flavour to the delicate salmon and the red and yellow peppers add a little healthy sweetness as well. We serves the salmon with some simple rice noodles but a side salad is also a good choice to accompany this tasty dish.
