Directions

  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.

This recipe was fairly good. I was expecting more depth to the flavor. I definitely enjoyed trying something new and this was a method of preparing salmon I had not tried before. The only changes I made was to add a bit more onion and garlic. I may or may not make this recipe again.

This is my family's favorite dish! It is always requested for company and other special occasions. It is easy and fast, and great served with Fresh Steamed Broccoli and Wild Rice!

The sauce and herbs sound like a great combonation, but the cooking technique is a mystery. How do you put a long package of parchament wrapped salmon in a double boiler. Can you bake this on a cookie sheet?
