Easy Salmon Potatoes and Green Beans In Parchment is a quick easy dinner in under 30 minutes! serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com
Easy Salmon Potatoes and Green Beans in parchment is a favorite dinner for those nights where I just don't have time in the kitchen.

We found this recipe works well with either green beans or asparagus and is easy to prepare in under 5 minutes. Perfect for busy nights in our house filled with basketball practices, homework and holiday activities or a healthy delicious lunch.

Easy Salmon Potatoes and Green Beans is elegant enough for last minute company for the holidays or an easy date night in and healthy but quick enough for any night of the week. Dinner is served in a packet resembling a present for a delicious surprise when unfolded.

The layers of salmon, potatoes, and green beans combine juices while baking for an amazing aromatic package of flavor.

I enjoy giving an option of green beans or asparagus to ensure even the pickiest eater enjoys every morsel of their meal.

Dinner starts out with Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon With Garlicky Black Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

It contains no preservatives and is gluten free with all natural ingredients making it an easy freezer favorite in our house. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® is a complete line of naturally-seasoned, restaurant quality, "fish-forward" prepared seafood solutions for the home. It raises the bar for what seafood lovers can expect from frozen food.

The packaging came no mess and fuss; just pure perfection time after time just like their other seafood products. Both Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon and Tilapia come with their own parchment paper baking pouches making them interchangeable in this recipe.

For each pouch pierce 1 Yukon Gold Baking Potato with a fork all over and microwave for 1:30 seconds - 2 minutes until potato is hot and just barely starting to cook.
Carefully slice potato in 1/4" slices and place in the middle of parchment baking pouch barely overlapping.

Season with a generous pinch of Salt, Pepper and Italian Seasoning.
Cover potatoes with around 10 Fresh Green Beans or Asparagus Spears a generous pinch of Salt, Pepper and Italian Seasoning per pouch. Divide 1/2 tablespoon Butter in cubes evenly over the top.
Place frozen Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon on top of green beans or asparagus.
Squeeze 2 slices of Lemon over the top and then place lemon slices over the top.
Fold in all 3 edges 1" under and then under two more times. Place on a rimmed baking sheet seam side down.
Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender and fish registers 145 degrees.

Allow packets to rest for 3-5 minutes to make handling easier.

Bumble Bee SuperFresh® smells and tastes amazing. It has no fishy smell. Since it's prepared straight from the freezer, there isn't a smell associated with thawing the fish and stays that way from harvest to your oven unlike most of the "fresh"fish you find at the seafood counter. That means it's fresh tasting, and fresh smelling.

Bumble Bee SuperFresh® offers unparalleled quality and has nothing to hide under heavy breading, sauces or a long list of unpronounceable ingredients. Find more meal planning inspiration and where to buy at Bumble Bee SuperFresh®.

  10. Love this - such a nice weeknight meal! And so healthy - I've never cooked potatoes this way and I am really loving this idea. We eat salmon every week, so I will be on the lookout for Bumble Bee.

  11. I need to make these up and freeze them so my 91 year old mother can just pop them in the oven and bake when she needs a dinner how can I do that

    1. Hi! If you're going to refreeze these I would cook the potatoes fully and cool them before reassembling so the frozen potatoes just need to heat through with the salmon. I don't know how well lemon freezes so you might have to try a trial run to see if the lemon slices flavor changes with freezing. You could always use a little additional lemon seasoning instead of fresh lemon if it's an issue. Please let me know if you have any more questions! -Serena
