Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut four 18x15-inch pieces of parchment paper or heavy-duty foil. Fold the parchment paper crosswise in half, forming a crease.

In a large bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the white wine, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.

Step 4

Add the yellow peppers and the snap peas, tossing to coat.

In a small bowl, mix the remaining white wine, the remaining olive oil, the remaining salt, the remaining pepper, and the lemon zest.

Lay open one piece of the parchment paper and place 1 of the salmon filets on one side.

Step 7

Drizzle the fillet with 2 teaspoons of the wine mixture.

Top the salmon with 1/4 of the vegetables.

Fold the paper over the fish and the vegetables, folding the open ends two times to seal the packet.

Place the packets on baking sheets.
