Easy Herbed Salmon in Parchment Paper

This is one of my favorite meals. Salmon (esp. skin on) is packed full of great heart healthy fats. This meal is easy to put in the oven when you get home from a long day and need a real meal. I like to swap out the spices frequently, sometimes its dill, or thyme, or tarragon. Feel free to get creative with the spice usage.

You can usually tell the salmon is done by picking up the parchment packet. The fish will sit firmly in the packet. When its not quite done its softer when picked up.
