Cooking in parchment

Today is Day 4 of a new Whole30. I have more to say about that, but not today.

I'm not really very organized about it, at the moment, but I have a cohort who is also motivated and that's helping to keep with the program.

The internet is also very helpful. Like yesterday, away from home, when it was decided that salmon would be good for supper... with dill. So I googled "Whole30 salmon dill" and came up with Dill & Lemon Baked Salmon in Parchment from paleogrubs.com.

Salmon-1

Chop & slice some zucchini, season, drizzle with olive oil, add lemon and salmon, season a little more, seal it up in parchment paper, and bake.

COULD.NOT.BE.EASIER. And clean up is a breeze.

Salmon-2

Every time I cook in parchment, I wonder why I don't do it more often. 

Seeing the similar Paleo Shrimp Baked in Parchment Paper recipe guarantees that I'll do it again soon!

I forget about parchment, too. Your inspiration will egg me on to try it next time, plus the shrimp recipe looks fabulous, too!

I'm wondering why I've never cooked in parchment. I've only used it so cookies don't stick, but now we are having that shrimp recipe for dinner tomorrow evening. Thanks for the inspiration and ideas!

Looks like a wonderful meal. I may have to get the ingredients to make my own.

That looks delish! And I know what you mean about the parchment, I rarely think of using it as well.

Looks delish! I haven't tried cooking en papillote before, always worry about how long to cook it. I'll google and find out!

Parchment is a wonder! I use it when baking all the time -- but sort of forget about it when cooking. That salmon looks like perfection.
