Salmon Parcels

Last updated: June 2018

This is a super easy way to cook salmon to retain moisture and flavor. You could serve it with a side of steamed vegetables or a 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown rice or just enjoy it on its own as a light meal. It’s also gluten and dairy free.

Serving size 1


  • 1 piece fresh salmon (150g/5oz)
  • 1.5 cups pak choy or bok choy, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbs coconut milk


  1. Heat a moderate oven to 340°F/170°C
  2. Place the piece of salmon on a large piece of oven proof baking paper
  3. Top with the chopped vegetable, grated ginger and coconut milk
  4. Wrap the parcel like a present and place onto an oven tray
  5. Bake the salmon in the oven for about 20 minutes or until just cooked
  6. Remove from the oven and carefully open the paper and watch out for the steam
