You can wrap the vegetables with the salmon early in the day, then drizzle with the wine mixture just before baking. Place the package on a long platter and open it at the table to tempt your guests with a wave of herbal aromas. Baby New Potatoes are the perfect accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 2 carrots
  • 2 parsnips
  • 2 kohlrabi
  • 1/2 rutabaga
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 lbs salmon fillets
  • 8 lemon slices
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

Peel and cut carrots, parsnips and rutabaga into 2- x 1/4- x 1/4-inch (5 cm x 5 mm x 5 mm) sticks. Cut celery into similar-size sticks.

In large pot of boiling water, blanch vegetables until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain and pat dry.

Centre 30-inch (75 cm) long piece of parchment paper crosswise on large rimmed baking sheet; arrange vegetables in centre, same length as salmon. Sprinkle with parsley and thyme.

Cut salmon crosswise into 8 pieces; arrange over vegetables as though still whole. (Make-ahead: Wrap paper loosely over salmon, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 6 hours; increase cooking time by 5 minutes.) Arrange lemon on salmon.

In small bowl, whisk together wine, oil, garlic, salt and pepper; drizzle over salmon. Fold short ends of paper over salmon; bring long edges together and fold tightly to form package. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until vegetables are tender and fish flakes easily when tested, about 20 minutes.
