Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets (3-6 ounces each)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large carrots, sliced in thin strips
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-2-inch piece of ginger, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Place 4 large sheets of parchment paper on a baking pan.
  3. Generously season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper, rubbing it down the front and back of the fish.
  4. Create a bed of carrots, onion and ginger in center of each piece of paper and top each with a salmon fillet.
  5. Sprinkle cumin and lemon over the fish, and then drizzle with butter.
