A quick, easy and healthy dinner. All you need is a parchment packet then toss in the ingredients, bake and voila! You’ll be eating in minutes.


  • 2 tablespoons sweet white miso
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons whole wheat couscous
  • 1 cup sliced bell peppers
  • 1 bunch broccolini (about 5 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2-8 ounce skinless boneless salmon fillets


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Cut two 15-inch-square pieces of parchment.  In a small bowl, whisk together miso and lime juice.
  2. In the center of each piece of parchment, layer half the couscous, peppers, and Broccolini, season with salt. Add pepper to taste and drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil. Place a piece of salmon on each pile of veggies and drizzle each with half the miso-lime dressing.
  3. Bring two sides of each parchment sheet together; fold over down the middle to seal and create rectangles. Fold open ends under and tuck beneath the packets. Transfer to a large baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until salmon flakes easily and veggies are tender.
  4. Transfer packets to plates, open and enjoy!

Note: almost any kind of meal works in a parchment packet. Just be sure to use boneless, skinless meat and fish.  Slice heartier veggies into thin, quick-cooking pieces. Some suggestions: Scallops, asparagus, peas, mint and lemon or Chicken, wild mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, green beans, olive oil, garlic, and rosemary or try Shrimp, new potatoes, corn, barbecue sauce and cilantro.
