Dinner doesn’t get simpler than parchment packet oven roasted parchment salmon and broccoli, red pepper and tomato parcels. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, High Protein and Low Carb. A healthy dinner with minimal prep.
Hello to my all time favorite fish – made in the best way ever – oven roasted parchment salmon. Salmon = celebration in my book (especially parchment salmon). And it doesn’t need to be an infrequent celebration – a dinner with friends or family that is ready in no time at all with minimal prep or clean up is celebration enough.
That’s the time to whip out Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garlicky Black Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil (which you can find in stores, or on Amazon Fresh). This was my first time trying out the Bumble Bee super fresh line. Before this my association with Bumble Bee was with their canned tuna, but apparently that is not all they do well.
They have branched out and now offer a whole frozen seafood line – that is already individually portioned, seasoned and packaged. Ready for cooking.
When you open the box you are met with 4 ounce portions of generously seasoned thin cut salmon fillets in plastic wrapping. You just need to remove the wrapping and place the salmon fillets in the folded parchment parcels and your parchment salmon is ready to go into the oven!
Then you fold over the open side and you’re done. This oven roasted parchment salmon and broccoli recipe is practically finished.
Pop that into a 425 degree preheated oven and 20 minutes the heart of your dinner is ready.
Since the protein is taken care of, I had to get to work on the veggies. Roasted salmon and broccoli is such a perfect combination – they pair so well together and both are so easy to cook. Plus, I love love love broccoli so that was on the top of my list, with red pepper and tomatoes falling in close second and third place. I roughly chopped all three, place in aluminum foil square, topped with a bit of olive oil, tamari, salt, pepper and garlic powder before sealing the packets shut and placing in the oven. Of course, if you’re not a fan of combining roasted salmon and broccoli or the other vegetables I’ve mentioned, you can substitute with your favourite vegetables instead, such as long beans, asparagus, or potatoes.
Once everything is ready it’s almost kind of fun to unwrap all the different parcels. Kind of like presents. Holiday presents.
This makes for a perfect low fuss minimal prep and clean up meal. The salmon, already be portioned and seasoned literally goes from freezer to plate in as little as 25 minutes. It’s also generously seasoned with lots of freshly cracked black pepper and extra virgin olive oil – my faves.
My mom recently purchased a pepper mill in the shape of a wine bottle – and it literally has become my favorite kitchen utensil, first because it looks cool and surprises every guests, and second of all because it is perfect for coarsely freshly ground black pepper. Needless to say, I highly appreciate my food generously peppered, which is exactly what this salmon is.
The roasted salmon and broccoli with red pepper and tomato parcels makes for a high protein, low carb gluten-free and dairy-free healthy weeknight meal fit for a celebration.
This roasted salmon and broccoli combo is one of my go-to recipes because it’s so easy to make, but that hasn’t stopped me from experimenting with other salmon recipes. Salmon has always been one of my most favorite fish recipes (as you can see in my Asian salmon salad with sesame ginger dressing, salmon red rice veggies bowls with roasted red pepper sauce, salmon cakes with hearts of palm, broiled red curry salmon with bean sprouts, etc) and continues to be.
