Parchment Baked Salmon is a quick way to get dinner together on a weeknight. It also has the bonus of easy clean up too. Everything is done in a single package on parchment that can go straight into your organic waste green bin when you are done!

Another bonus is that this baked salmon recipe excludes all the common allergens and is “elimination diet” friendly.

Salmon is also an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids. It is supportive of heart health, brain and mood health as well as joint health. In addition, a high level of omega 3 fats helps to reduce inflammation in the body.

Feel free to vary up the vegetables with what you enjoy and have on hand.
