  1. Tear a 2 foot piece of parchment paper and place lemon slices in the middle, lengthwise. Place fresh rosemary and thyme on top of lemon slices. Lay salmon filets on top of herbs. Divide 1 tablespoon of butter among each filet. Fold and seal the parchment paper being careful that the lemon slices and herbs stay on the bottom. Wrap another piece of parchment paper tightly around the fish.
  2. Place fish packet into a double boiler for 25 to 30 minutes. While fish is cooking, make the sauce.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the remaining 1/4 cup of butter, olive oil, garlic and onion; cook and stir on medium heat for 15 minutes, until onions are transparent. Do not over brown. Pour in heavy cream and cook until it begins to thicken. Remove from the heat.
  4. Pour the hot butter mixture into a blender. Add fresh mint and blend on high for 10 to 15 seconds. Pour back into the saucepan to warm and thicken for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not let it sit too long, or it will begin to break down.
  5. When fish is done, remove from parchment paper and pace on a warm plate. Spoon sauce over top of fish.

Very nice mint sauce. It's has a light, fresh taste that complements the salmon nicely. When baking the salmon, I just spray a layer of cooking spray on parchment paper, lay down the salmon, an...

This was wonderful! I used a hand blender right in the pan for the sauce and added a dab more garlic. I also used foil as an outer wrapping on the packets. The salmon was tender, moist, full of ...

I only used this recipe for the sauce... I added some white cooking wine and old bay garlic and herb seasoning and thought it turned out rather well. Delicate flavor that complimented the salmon...

Very nice flavor and I used talapia fillets instead of salmon. My one complaint was that after 25 min the butter wasn't even melted and I had the water on a low boil the entire time. So, popped ...

This was very good. I did use more garlic and onion than the recipe called for and it did wonders for the flavor of the dish. This has wonderful stage presence. Thanks for the post.
