Serves: 2
Prep Time: 45 Minutes
Occasion: Any
Effort: Average

2 tbs. unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tbs. salt-packed capers, rinsed well, coarsely chopped

1 tbs. coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 med. clove garlic, finely chopped

1 lg. or 2 sm. russet potatoes, scrubbed well and sliced 1/8 in. thick

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 med. shallots, thinly sliced

2 oz. baby spinach, well washed

2 six-ounce salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 in. thick)

1 lemon, thinly sliced

2 twelve-by-seventeen-in. pieces parchment paper

How to Prepare:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a baking sheet in oven to preheat.

Make caper butter:
In a sm. bowl, combine butter, capers, parsley, and garlic. Mix well with a wooden spoon.

Fold each piece of parchment in half crosswise, then open, creating a crease. Divide potato evenly between the two pieces of parchment, forming a bed to one side of the crease. Season with salt and pepper. Top each bed of potatoes with one quarter of the shallots. Spread spinach evenly over shallots. Place salmon on top of spinach, then divide remaining shallots between the two packages. Top each piece of salmon with two slices of lemon, and dot with caper butter. Season with salt and pepper. Fold parchment up and over the ingredients, making small overlapping folds along the edge to seal.

Using a lg. spatula, place packets on heated baking sheet. Bake until packets have puffed and the fish is cooked through, about 18 min. Transfer packets to individual plates.

Serve immediately, opening packets at the table. Garnish with remaining lemon.
