  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced, deseeded if you like
  • Thai jasmine rice, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Before you prep the veg mix together the soy, vinegar, ginger, garlic and some black pepper in a bowl. Add the salmon fillets, cover and leave to marinate for 10 mins at room temperature or up to 2 hrs in the fridge.

  2. Tear two large sheets of baking parchment, big enough to encase the fish and vegetables in and put onto a baking tray.

  3. Divide the vegetables between the centre of the paper and top each with a marinated salmon fillet and the sliced chilli. Bring the sides of the parchment up over the salmon and pour half of the remaining marinade over each fillet then scrunch the paper tightly together to seal the fish in a parcel.

  4. Roast for 20–25 mins, until the salmon is just cooked through and flakes into large pieces. Serve the fish in the parcel with some rice, if you like.

Great meal and so easy to prepare and cook, full of flavour and healthy! We scored it 8/10. Make sure you have a big piece of parchment to make the parcels. I cooked it as the recipe said but felt the vegetables needed 5 mins longer overall than the 25 mins but we did have thick pieces of salmon. whole meal with rice was delicious and definitely going to be repeated

Quite a quick meal to prepare and sort, don't have spiralizer but used a hack found online using a box grater, did the job perfectly well. Will definitely be making again. Made exactly as recipe, Served with rice.

This is a good and speedy meal which got the thumbs up from my family. I didn't have the stated vegetables so used up what I had in the fridge. I sweated off a large leek (because I didn't think it would cook in the time) in a le Creuset casserole dish, then stirred in spiralised carrot, chopped broccoli and cabbage and finally put the salmon and marinade on top of all the veg. Then the lid went on and the whole lot went in the oven for 25 minutes. Served with rice. Delicious.

I cannot find this recipe in the Feb2017 edition of Good food Magazine; can someone tell me which page it is on? Or is it an error with the edition date?
