Good Friday!
No meat day for us ... what to make for dinner?
A modern drier version of the Sinigang na Isda  that I learned from my family (Fish cooked in a spicy sour broth).
So here is an easy recipe ... Salmon en Papillote.


4 - 5 oz Salmon Fillets
2 tablespoon lemon juice
4 thinly sliced lemons
2 tomatoes chopped or 16 cherry tomaotes sliced in 1/2
2 jalapeno peppers, cut in 1/2 seeded and deveined (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
4 12 x 12 Parchment paper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Fold parchment paper in half lengthwise. Cut out heart-shaped pieces from each sheet, starting from the fold. Make each heart about 2 inches wider than the fish fillets. Set aside.

Place a salmon fillet, atop a sheet of parchment paper. Spoon the sliced tomatoes over the salmon.Top the tomatoes with the thinly sliced lemon and the jalapeno pepper. If you don't like any spicy pepper you definitely don't have to use it.
Season with salt and pepper.

Fold the paper in half lengthwise to close and roll the edges together to seal the packets.
Place the packets on a baking sheet and bake until the salmon is just cooked through, about 20 minutes (until the paper is puffed and browned).
Using a large spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.

This is a delicious, quick and easy dinner if you are having friends over.
Always a Hit!!!
