Baking in parchment paper pouches amounts to oven-steaming and this technique keeps all the flavors in place. So, your low-carb salmon fillet will not be just moist and juicy, but also intensely flavored with whatever you choose to flavor it with. This time we recommend sharp lemon and mildly peppery basil.
