    Technically, this dish is called Salmon en Papillote. "En Papillote" means "in paper." It's a type of cooking method that gets its name from steaming inside parchment paper and it works beautifully for salmon. We love this recipe because salmon is a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fats as well as vitamin D (good for bone health and calcium regulation) and selenium (a powerful antioxidant that's beneficial for thyroid gland function).

    1. Cut out a large piece of parchment paper and fold in half. Cut into a heart shape.

    2. Place salmon close to the fold on the paper. Season with dill, parsley, salt, pepper, and a splash of white wine or lemon juice.

    3. Top fish with lemon slices and two thin slices of Hy-Vee unsalted butter.

    4. To close the packet, tightly fold the curved edge. Slightly tent paper over the salmon. Place salmon packets on a large baking sheet.

    5. Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Serve pouches on plates, allowing each person to open their own Salmon En Papillote.
