Fold parchment paper into a quick pouch, toss in fresh ingredients, bake and bingo – an easy, low-fuss meal in minutes.
Almost any kind of meal works in a parchment packet.
Just be sure to use boneless, skinless meat and fish, as well as heartier veggies sliced into thin, quickcooking pieces. Here are some of our favourite combos to get you started.
1. Preheat the oven to 200 deg C. Cut two 38cm sq pieces of parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together miso and lime juice.
2. In the centre of each piece of parchment paper, layer on half the couscous, peppers, and broccolini. Season with salt, add pepper to taste, and drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil.
Place a piece of salmon on each pile of vegetables and drizzle each with half the miso-lime dressing.
3. Bring two sides of each parchment sheet together, fold over down the middle to seal and create rectangles.
Fold open ends under and tuck beneath the packets.
Transfer to a large baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, until salmon flakes easily and vegetables are tender.
4. Transfer packets to plates and open parchment.
