Salmon Parchment Pack

Parchment pack dinners offer the ease and convenience of single packs with zero clean-up: an attractive option for anyone looking to make the most of their evenings (while still putting a healthy meal on the table).

We think this light and tasty salmon with asparagus pack is the perfect spring dinner—and Primal Kitchen Lemon Turmeric Dressing and Marinade makes it even easier. Four main ingredients, and supper is served!

Servings: 2

Time In the Kitchen: 15 minutes




Heat oven to 375ºF.

Divide raw asparagus and place half as well as a half salmon fillets in 2 large sheets of parchment paper. Fold up all sides of the paper slightly to form rim. Pour 3 tablespoons of Primal Kitchen Lemon Turmeric Dressing & Marinade over each fillet half and asparagus stalks.

Bring up paper sides. Double fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place packets in single layer in shallow pan.

Bake 15 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening packet. Top with additional dressing, lemon slices and chopping parsley as desired.

  1. This morning I got four “ransom” emails trying to extort money based on a preposterous claim. The emails came from a source that looked to have the suffix “”, so you may want to be sure no one has gotten into your systems.

    1. Thanks, Matt and everyone else who commented here about the email. Yes, it has come to our attention that Primal Kitchen and Mark’s Daily Apple subscribers may have received unauthorized emails early yesterday morning. We’re investigating and will provide updates as information becomes available. In the interim, please don’t open any emails or click any links that look suspicious.

  2. Can this be done with other than asparagus. NOT A FAN!!! Thinking Cauliflower or Radishes or some such?


  3. Agree with TW…cooking in metal that leeches can hardly be called healthy. Why not make the simple switch to parchment? Wake up MDA

  4. This sounds delicious, I look forward to trying it. Not an asparagus fan, I’d do it for all the rest of the family, but green beans for me.
