Salmon and rice parcels

Cooking fish inside a baking paper parcel seals in all the flavour – and saves on the washing up! Try this simple salmon recipe with fennel, sweet red peppers and lemon for a quick dinner idea this summer.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cut four 30 x 40cm pieces of nonstick baking paper and divide the rice, fennel, lemon, pepper and salmon fillets between them. Season, then wrap the paper around the fish and vegetables to make parcels.
  2. Place on a large baking tray and bake for 25 mins until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve scattered with a handful of rocket.
