Easy Salmon with Fennel and Shiitake Mushroom

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 25 M


  • 4 6-oz pieces of salmon
  • Small handful of parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped shitake mushrooms
  • 2 shallots halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • half large fennel bulb , sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • parchment paper


Cut parchment large enough for each piece of salmon to be wrapped and covered completely.

Combine the parsley, chopped shitake mushrooms, shallots, garlic and white wine in a small bowl.

Season each piece of salmon with salt and pepper.

Divide the fennel between the parchment paper and place each piece of salmon directly on top of the fennel. Then divide the mushroom mixture between each package. Drizzle each piece of salmon with olive oil.

Fold the edges of the parchment paper inward to cover the salmon and create a seal.

Place each sealed package on a baking sheet and place on the middle rack of an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Cook for about 20 minutes or until an instant read thermometer reads 145 degrees in the thickest part of the salmon.

Remove from oven and place the contents of each package on individual plates to serve.
