Easter brunch doesn't have to bust your diet. In fact, salmon can be a healthy alternative to ham with all the trimmings.
Home Cuisine's Mae Pike shows how cooking fish or poultry in parchment paper can save calories and fat.
Citrus Salmon baked in Parchment Paper
4 (4 ounce) wild salmon fillets
1 teaspoons olive oil
4 (12 inch) squares of parchment paper
1 blood orange, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1 lime, sliced into rounds
1 bunch fresh dill weed
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Brush each piece of salmon on both sides with a light coating of olive oil. Fold each sheet of parchment in half and use scissors to round out the corners so that it is almost a circle. Open the sheets back up.
Place the salmon fillets skin side down onto the center of each piece of parchment. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then place a sprig of dill onto each fillet. Cover with one slice of orange, one slice of lemon and one slice of lime per serving. You may add more to taste. Lay another sprig or two of dill over the citrus slices.
Fold each piece of parchment up and over the fillets. Holding both edges of the parchment together, roll the edge down making several folds as you go until the fish fillets are tightly sealed in their packets. Place packets on a baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is able to be flaked with a fork. You may need to open one of the packets to check. To serve, place packets onto serving plates and use scissors to cut an X in the center, being careful not to cut the food.
