Quick and easy recipe for salmon! Serve with a nice side salad, if desired!

  • 3/4 c. parsley, fresh, organic
  • 1 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 1/2 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 4 salmon, fresh, wild-caught
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, crushed, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger, fresh, organic
  • 5 c. spinach, baby, fresh, organic
  • 1 c. chickpeas, cooked, organic

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut four 12x17-inch pieces of parchment paper; fold each in half crosswise to form a crease, then open up.

Using a blender or food processor, pulse the parsley, minced garlic, freshly grated ginger, and olive oil to make a paste. Season each salmon fillet with salt and red pepper flakes.

Rub fish with the paste. Divide spinach and chickpeas evenly among the four parchment pieces, arranging mixture on 1 side of each crease to form a rectangle the size of an individual salmon fillet; season each pile with sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste. Place a salmon fillet on top of each pile and fold parchment paper over the ingredients; make overlapping pleats to seal.

Bake about 11 minutes for medium. Unwrap carefully so as not to allow any steam to burn you. ENJOY!
