Continuing with our perfect Valentine’s dinner, let me share with you this delicious main dish, easy, light and full of good things!

Steaming fish or vegetables in papillote was always something my mum would do frequently. She would either do it as a starter for dinner parties, or for a light dinner for us on Fridays. It is also great to keep all of the good vitamins and Omega 3 from the fish and the deliciousness of the vegetables. Add some lemon, salt and garlic ( It is Valentine’s Day so you might want to avoid the garlic … I mean, you will both be eating the same dish, so who cares!) and you get a fresh and fragrant dish.

This salmon dish can be adapted to any flavours you want, any oils, fish, vegetables and even some tofu if you have a vegetarian or vegan partner.

To even make it easier for you, I am sharing all of my secrets on the video HERE that you can easily follow, along side this article 🙂

    This salmon recipe has become my go to recipe when preparing salmon. It is so good. I vary from the directions a bit in that I wrap in parchment first and then the tinfoil, just a little quirkiness of mine. Thanks again for sharing.
