What to do

  • 1. Preheat oven to 170°C (335°F) fan-forced.

  • 2. Prepare 4 large sheets of baking paper (roughly 30 cm x 40c m). Place some spinach in the centre of each sheet and top with a salmon fillet. Season with salt and pepper. Scatter cherry tomatoes and capers over the top of the salmon (disperse evenly).

  • 3. Drizzle with a small amount of oil.

  • 4. Bring the sides of the baking paper in at the centre and fold and scrunch to close.

  • 5. Place each bag on a tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.

  • 6. To serve, drizzle with a little more oil and serve with a lemon wedge.
