Venturing out to sea only to return to the rivers from which they came, salmon are unlike any other fish. Because a salmon’s entire life is spent preparing for a difficult swim upstream, the strong muscles and energy stores in its body give the meat a unique taste. Its oily pink flesh gives way to a subtle buttery and nutty flavor that makes it palatable to even the pickiest of fish eaters—making salmon a perfect main dish for a dinner with guests.
A simple baked preparation is all that’s needed to showcase the incredible quality of the fish (while also impressing those around your table). However, due to the distinct characteristics of its flesh, there are a few tips to ensure that the fish does not become tough and dry. Since the flavor of salmon is rich and buttery, it benefits most from a long, slow bake that allows the complexities of the fish to meld with the other ingredients.
This is the healthiest plant-based milk
Almond milk - even if it's unsweetened - isn't the most nutritious.Not so fast. A 2017 review in the Journal of Food Science and Technology actually found that soy milk, not almond milk, was the healthiest plant-based milk. And two separate almond milk manufacturers have been sued recently for misleading claims on their labels about their almond content.
Baking salmon in enclosed packets of parchment paper tied together with kitchen twine forces the moisture in the lemon and herbs to infuse the flesh of the fish rather than dissipating into the oven, making for a delicious and balanced bite of moist buttery fish with a hint of fresh brightness. Salmon is best when baked with another fatty element (like melted butter or olive oil), lemon, and a tender herb (like dill, parsley, or cilantro).
Prepare the fillets
Preheat oven to 275°F. Season all sides of the salmon filet with salt and allow to rest while you prepare the other ingredients.
Prepare the Packets
Cut out a large piece of parchment paper for each filet of salmon. Slice your lemons so they’re in 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Place a layer of lemon slices in the center of each piece of parchment paper, and put a few sprigs of your fresh herb of choice on top of the lemon slices. Brush the filets with either melted butter or olive oil, and place one filet on top of each mound of lemon and herbs. Bring each corner of the parchment paper to the center of the filet and tie together with kitchen twine to create a tightly wrapped packet.

Bake the Fish

A Dutch baby is basically a pancake and a popover combined—and it will quickly become an easy dinner go-to. I always thought Dutch baby pancakes had to be dusted with powdered sugar and served with strawberries for breakfast. And because I tend to prefer savory breakfasts, I never really gave Dutch babies the time of day. But when I realized I could give the popular oven pancake a savory makeover, I quickly jumped on board.Dutch baby pancakes, with their crispy edges and soft, pancake-like centers, are the perfect blank slate for any number of flavors.
