INGREDIENTS:
Fresh herb of choice – thyme, rosemary, basil, dill, etc
2 Salmon filets
6 small thinly sliced red potatoes
2  zucchini, sliced into rounds
fresh asparagus, trimmed
1/4 red onion (medium sized), thinly sliced
1/4 c. matchstick carrots
1/2 c. cremini or button mushrooms
1 c. fresh spinach
1 thinly sliced lemon
1/2 c. white wine
parchment paper
 
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut rectangle of parchment paper about one 1/2 feet long.  Fold shorter sides together like a book.  As large as possible, cut a half heart with the fold of your “book” being the center of the heart.  Unfold heart shape.
 
On one side of heart, layering down the seam side, layer your ingredients -herb, potatoes, zucchini, asparagus, carrots, onion, mushroom, spinach, salmon, herb, lemon slices. Salt and pepper lightly in between layers as desired.Drizzle with white wine or broth.  Salt and pepper top.
 
Begin folding at the top of heart seam.  Fold a small flap over once.  Continue going down the cut edges making small folds that fold over the last fold.  Keep folding until you you reach the bottom point of the heart.  Twist the end to seal or fold under. Lay your Papillotes on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Enjoy!
