Salmon En Papillote (Salmon in Parchment) & Wine Tips

Salmon in Parchment

Genesis: 9:20  After Noah and his sons came out of the ark, Noah, a husbandman, began to till the ground, and planted a vineyard. 

JOHN 2:1-10  – Jesus performed his first public miracle at Cana in Galilee turning water into wine.

Wine is mentioned a lot of times in the Bible.  Did the people of Bible Days drink wine on a daily basis? 

Wine was the universal drink, since beverages were an important part of Biblical meals. And yes, most people grew their own grapes for wine.


Today wine tastings are a popular way of entertaining. Any tips for what to look for when you’re tasting a particular wine?

Wine tastings can be broken down into 5 components: color, swirl, smell, taste and savor.

To determine the color and age of a wine, pour it in a clear glass and hold it up to a white background, like a napkin. Color can tell you a lot. White wines get darker with age and red wines lose their color.

Swirl the wine allows the alcohol to climb up the edges of your glass and that releases the bouquet. Sniff it after you’ve whirled. Try to identify the different aromas and then taste it.


So easy, so good. You can user foil instead of parchment if you like.

Preheat oven to 350.

Place salmon, skin side down, on parchment.

Drizzle a little olive oil on top, then seasonings/herbs, then lemon slices.

Carefully pour a little white wine over all.

Close packet up, seam side up and place on cookie sheet to bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 minutes or so.

To serve, place packet on plate, cut an opening in the top and watch the oohs and aahhs as the steam is released from the packet. If you want, put a fresh slice of citrus on top
