Salmon with Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes in Parchment

Ingredients
1  pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
1/4  teaspoon salt
1/8  teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2  cans (14-1/2 oz. each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1  pound sweet potatoes (about 2 medium), peeled and cut into matchsticks
2  cups broccoli florets
3  tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3  tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2  teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/2  teaspoon dried thyme
1  large garlic clove, pressed
1  Tbsp Olive oil
 
Directions
 
1. Sprinkle salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside. 
2. Heat oven to 425 degree F. In a medium saucepan bring broth to a boil over high heat.
Add sweet potatoes and cook 1 minute. Add broccoli and cook 2 minutes more. Drain. 
 
3. Fold 2 sheets of parchment paper in half and then in half again. Starting at the folded edge, cut each paper into a
half-heart shape. Unfold so that you end up with 4 paper hearts. Lightly brush both sides of the paper with olive oil. Place
1/4 of the vegetables on half of one paper heart. Place a salmon fillet on top of vegetables. Combine the parsley, cilantro,
lemon peel, thyme, olive oil and garlic in a cup, then sprinkle 1/4 of this mixture over the salmon and vegetables. Fold the
top of the heart over the fish and vegetables, then crimp and fold the edges to tightly seal. Place on a baking sheet lightly
coated with nonstick cooking spray. Repeat with remaining parchment paper, vegetables, salmon, and herbs so you end
up with 4 packages on the baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until the paper is puffy and browned. Carefully cut open
each package with the tip of a sharp knife, releasing the steam. Transfer contents to a plate. Makes 4 servings. 
 
First secret for this recipe:
This dish takes some time to prepare, but cooking it is a snap. Steaming the food in parchment is a great way to retain a
food’s nutrients — in this case, heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids in the salmon, calcium and iron in the broccoli, and fiber
and antioxidants in the sweet potatoes.
 
Second-meal secret:
For a light seafood salad, break up pieces of salmon and toss with broccoli and chopped Romaine lettuce in a dressing
made with extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, and some Dijon mustard.
