If you’re looking for an easy, delicious and healthy dinner, this parchment baked Arctic Char is just for you. Everything is cooked together in a parchment paper pouch that’s practically mess free and ready in just about 30 minutes.


  • Arctic Char or Salmon

  • Sweet Potatoes

  • Diced Pancetta or Bacon

  • Fresh Basil

  • Lemon

  • S&P

  • Fresh Garlic

  • Smoked Paprika

  • Olive Oil

  • Rosemary, Arugula and Basil


  1. Make the Parchment Pouch or simply buy an already made one. Here’s a great tutorial on how to DIY it. I used a sheet pan to measure how big I wanted the pouch, I laid the paper flat on the cookie sheet and then folded that in half.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  3. Make the Fish Rub by adding chopped garlic,basil,rosemary,lemon juice and zest, olive oil, S&P and smoked paprika to a bowl. rub the salmon with half of the marinade and let it sit for a while.

  4. While the fish is marinating,slice your sweet potatoes very thinly or you can use a mandolin. Toss them with some olive oil, salt and pepper.

  5. Working on one side of the folded parchment, layer the potatoes, then place the seasoned salmon over the potatoes and drizzle with more olive oil top with lemons slices and add the diced pancetta or bacon all over the salmon. Close the parchment packet by folding the other half over the salmon and sealing the edges.

  6. Leave in the Baking Sheet and bake for 15-20 min.

  7. Top with Basil or Arugula, the Marinade and Enjoy!
