Recipe Ingredients for Salmon and Summer Squash in Parchment

2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp lemon rind
2 yellow squash
2 tbs shallot
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 medium zucchini
8 oz salmon

Recipe Directions for Salmon and Summer Squash in Parchment

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. From lemon, grate 1 teaspoon peel and squeeze 2 tablespoons juice.

  3. In medium bowl, combine lemon juice, yellow squash, shallot, oregano, oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper.

  4. Place parchment rectangles on work surface with a short side of parchment closest to you. On half of each parchment rectangle, arrange one-sixth of zucchini slices lengthwise, overlapping slightly, 2 inches from edge closest to you. Place salmon on zucchini; sprinkle with lemon peel and 1/2 teaspoon salt, then top with yellow-squash mixture. Fold other half of parchment over ingredients. To seal packets, begin at 1 corner and tightly fold edges of paper over about 1/2 inch all around, overlapping the folds.

  5. Place packets on large cookie sheet. Bake 17 minutes or until salmon turns opaque throughout (to check for doneness, open 1 packet first, being careful to avoid escaping steam).

  6. To serve, carefully cut all packets open, and with spatula, gently transfer salmon and vegetables to 6 dinner plates. Spoon any liquid remaining in parchment over salmon and vegetables.
