Wild Salmon Baked in Parchment with Avocado-Garlic Sauce


Today's simple but sophisticated recipe exploits the flavor of onion, bay leaf, and tarragon to create a dish suggestive of Provencal cuisine.

Meanwhile, the creamy avocado sauce with crème fraîche enfolds the gusto of garlic and vinegar and lends the proceedings a light, fresh Latin American flavor.

Wild Salmon Baked in Parchment with Avocado-Garlic Sauce

Serves 4

Salmon ingredients

4 (6 oz each) wild salmon fillets
4 sprigs fresh tarragon
2 organic bay leaves
4 yellow or Vidalia onion ring slices
1 ripe tomato, diced
4 dessert spoons of white wine
Sea salt and organic black pepper
Sauce ingredients
1 ripe avocado
1 small pot crème fraîche
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar (or sherry vinegar)
Sea salt and organic black pepper


Sauce instructions
  • Halve, de-stone and peel the avocado and put into a processor or blender along with the garlic cloves and vinegar, season, and blend until smooth.

  • Empty the crème fraîche into a bowl along with the avocado purée and mix thoroughly. Taste and check for seasoning as it may need a touch more vinegar. Cover and put in the fridge until needed.

  • When ready to serve the salmon fillets, remove the bay leaf.

  • Place each fillet on a plate and serve the avocado sauce separately.

Salmon instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C)
  • Spread a large sheet of parchment (large enough to fold over the salmon) in a shallow baking tray. Place salmon fillets in tray, with an onion slice, 1/4 of tomato dice, sprig of tarragon, and 1/2 a bay leaf on each one. Season with salt and pepper and pour a dessert spoon of white wine over each one.

  • Wrap fillets loosely in the parchment and pin the top to seal.

  • Bake the salmon for 20 minutes, remove, and leave to cool, unwrapped.
