Salmon & Veggies Baked In Cedar Paper

Do you enjoy baked fish & Veggies?

What you will need:

Zucchini (courgettes)
Brown Sugar
Sea Salt & White & Black Pepper
Cedar Paper

Served with a warm French Baguette

This recipe is easy, healthy and DELICIOUS!

I love salmon but always find it bland when I get it at restaurants ..but not this concoction that I've come up with,  it is far from bland!

I use 2 medium sized salmon filet's and cut them in half.  One bunch of asparagus, washed & trimmed (the best way to determine where to trim the stalks is simply bend the asparagus until it snaps) then just take 4-6 stalks at a time and snap them as you wash them under running water.  The carrots I julienned and for I used 3 big carrots for this recipe. One zucchini or courgettes for my British readers!  Again julienned.

Prep all of your veggies and have your salmon cut...Take your cedar paper (which I start to soak in water and lime juice for about  30 minutes before I cut up my veggies) lay the salmon *skin side down* on the cedar paper and drizzle with the honey/butter/brown sugar mixture.  The mixture is about 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar (I use light brown), 3-4 tablespoons of butter, and about 3-4 tablespoons of honey.   I don't really measure when I'm making my own recipes, I got by 'taste' so use your own judgement and see how 'sweet & buttery' you like it!

Drizzle the honey/butter/brown sugar mixture over the salmon on the cedar plank and sprinkle some sea salt & black and white pepper over the drizzle.  Then place the veggies on top of the salmon.  You can drizzle more honey/butter/brown sugar mixture over the veggies as well or just sea salt & pepper.

Gently roll the cedar paper up and tie with the string provided (or any string..just make sure it was soaked in the water for 30 minutes as well so you don't catch fire to your kitchen!)

Bake at 325 for about 15-20 minutes (ovens will vary) I did 25 minutes at 350 once too and it was fine..but that salmon was a little thicker.

I served this with a warm French baguette and wine.

Let me know how yours turns out!  ENJOY!
