Steamed Salmon and Zucchini

Steamed Salmon and Zucchini

Zucchini is my all-time favorite vegetable. I know it may be strange, but its just so delicious and versatile that it gets my vote. My closest friend constantly kids me about this but I take it in stride as its always on my shopping list and I'm known to always have it in the house. 
Its a flavorful, low calorie vegetable that can be used as a substitute for pasta. 
Below, is a great dinner that is short on prep time but long on taste and presentation. 

Try it, you will certainly appreciate the ease of the before(prep), during(eating) and after(clean-up)!


  • 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 salmon fillet (6 to 8 ounces)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fold a piece of parchment paper in half to crease it; open, and lay it flat.
  2. On one side of crease, place zucchini; top with onion.  Drizzle with olive and season with salt and pepper. Place salmon on top; season with salt and pepper.
  3. To close, fold parchment over salmon; to seal the open sides and tuck the edges underneath; place wrapped salmon on a lined baking sheet; bake for 18 minutes, remove from oven, let rest 10 minutes and serve.
