MIAMI -- Fresh salmon topped with vegetables and dill is cooked in a parcel to make a light summer supper. Steamed in its own juices, the fish is succulent and the vegetables are cooked just right.
Once the packets are prepared, the cooking time is only eight to 10 minutes in a hot oven. The secret is to make sure your oven is at temperature when adding the fish.
Serve the parcels directly at the table so you can get the first delicious whiff as they are opened.
For a quick side dish, toss 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice (from a microwaveable package) with 1/4 cup snipped parsley, 2 teaspoons olive oil and salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
