Spiced Orange Salmon Parcels

January 14, 2019Sew White

The fresh and fragrant Spiced Orange Salmon Parcels are a beautiful dish and incredibly easy to make. The perfect light spring meal.

With summer so close it’s time for me to start making lighter meals which can be served with lots of salad and new potatoes. This is a really simple and easy to make dish that works as a casual midweek meal or as proper posh friends round dinner. It also works fabulously as a light starter if you half the portion.

The fresh oranges with the spices and herbs works so well with the salmon.

By folding up the salmon steaks in the greaseproof paper it makes a little hot pocket which keeps all the juices and herbs around the salmon and it works to help absorb the taste and the smell from the orange and spices. Plus it’s really easy to make and there isn’t too much washing up either so that’s always a good thing!

Spiced Orange Salmon Parcels Recipe

This is a wonderful quick and healthy lunch or dinner which brings together fresh orange and  salmon. Cooking them in their little parcels keeps the fish and flavour together. The mix of salmon, orange, spices and fresh dill to is so good. The flavours complement each other and once you’ve had it once you will have it time and time again.

    Lush Sisley, I remember having orange flavoured salmon years ago and had forgotten all about it. Must try this:-)

    I usually pair lime with salmon but I really like your inclusion of orange. And the fennel seeds too – a much-underrated herb in the UK. Lovely.

      I haven’t tried it with lime but I might have to this week. I agree with the fennel seeds. I partly used them as they were looking sad in the spice cupboard but they work so well.
