Talk about a pretty package. This salmon is all about its unique presentation, which also conveniently happens to be its cooking method. By wrapping the fish, along with a variety of vegetables and herbs, in a parchment pouch, you get a delicately steamed, perfectly moist result. This dish is also totally flexible: Vary the fish, vegetables, and herbs depending on your taste (or what you have in the refrigerator that day).

Er, s-e-a-m side down?
Seem side down?
Everything came out perfectly! The only thing is that I cooked the packets vegetable side down, and the oil and fat from the fish ended up coating the vegetables. So I would end up cooking it seam side up next time.
