Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 365°F (185°C).
  2. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Carefully, place the eggs in the water and boil for 5 minutes. Remove eggs and place in ice-cold water immediately. Peel eggs and chop roughly.
  3. Distribute frozen or barely thawed spinach in the middle of a parchment paper. One sheet per serving. Sprinkle with nutmeg and finely chopped onion. You can even fry the onion in a little butter first if you like.
  4. Place the salmon pieces on top of the vegetables together with the egg pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Slice or crumble butter on top.
  5. Fold the parchment paper over so the two ends meet. Wrap gently, so it forms a pouch. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15-25 minutes, or until cooked to your desired doneness.
  6. Serve with fresh chives.

Tip!

In this recipe, we have used fresh salmon fillet but you can also use smoked salmon or other fresh fish such as cod or tilapia.

You can also switch out spinach for sugar snaps, lightly blanched green beans, or thinly sliced raw zucchini.

    Just finished eating this. It was very nice! Can’t comment on the timings because I used a table top lidded mini oven type device (no heat settings). I did defrost and drain the excess water from the spinach before I put it in the paper because I thought that the dish would be way to wet if I didn’t. It came out just fine. Nutmeg was a good spice to use in this.
