Ingredients
  • 1 (1 3/4-pound) salmon fillet
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes drained
  • 1/3 cup artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 3 sprigs fresh dill chopped
  • 1/3 cup pesto sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and lay a long sheet of parchment paper on a large baking sheet.

  2. Place salmon fillet on top of the parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt, paprika, ground ginger, and dried dill.

  3. Top salmon with the remaining ingredients, trying to get an even distribution over the full fillet.

  4. Fold the sides and ends of the parchment paper, creating a packet. Secure with twine.

  5. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through. Thicker cuts of fish will require 25 to 30 minutes.

  6. Remove fish from the oven, cut the twine and un-wrap the parchment paper. Cut into individual-size portions and serve with your choice of side dishes.
