Servings: 3-4 servings
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
4 heart-shaped pieces parchment paper
4 (6-ounce) fillets fresh salmon
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup 1 1/2-inch long julienne strips zucchini
1/4 cup 1 1/2-inch long julienne strips yellow squash
1/4 cup 1 1/2-inch long julienne strips leeks
1/2 cup 1 1/2-inch long julienne strips mushrooms
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup black beans, cooked
Herb butter, recipe follows
1 cup good white wine, or fresh lemon juice, or apple juice
3 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced scallions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray the bottom of the parchment paper with nonstick spray. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and place on the right side of the paper.
Combine the julienne vegetables and toss together. Season with salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Place an even amount of black beans and julienne vegetables on top of each fillet. Top with 2 slices of the chilled butter. Drizzle some white wine and soy sauce over and around fish. Sprinkle with ginger.
Starting with the point of the paper heart, roll and crimp the edges until the fillets are totally encased and sealed in the half-heart shape. Place packages on a cookie sheet.
Place pan in the center of the oven without a rack above it. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the parchment has puffed and is light brown. Remove from oven and transfer to oval platters for serving.
In a glass bowl, combine all ingredients for the butter. Mix well. Place butter on a piece of plastic wrap and roll plastic to form into a 1/2 inch thick cylinder. Refrigerate the butter to set, about 20 minutes.
