Recipe for salmon that's easy to make and to clean up.

Norwegian Salmon in Aluminum Foil

Serves: 4

4  sheets aluminum foil (12 x 18 inches, slightly larger than yellow legal pad)
2  tablespoons canola oil
2  medium carrots, cut into thin strips
1  small leek, cut into thin slices
1  onion, cut into thin slices
1  head iceberg lettuce, cut into 8 wedges
1 1/2  pounds Norwegian Salmon fillet, boneless, skin removed, cut into 8 portions
1  tablespoon water for each package
4  tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place aluminum foil on table with shortest side facing you. All food will be placed in middle of bottom half of foil. Top half of foil will eventually be folded over food. Brush center of bottom half with oil.

Mix all vegetables and spread 1/4 of them over oil. Arrange 2 portions of salmon with vegetables. Add water. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining three sheets of foil.

To seal pouches, fold top section of foil over. Fold and squeeze edges together to form well-sealed pouch. Place packages on large baking sheet and place in preheated oven. When packages enlarge, they're ready to serve - usually after about 6 to 8 minutes.

To serve, carefully place each package on plate and open at table with pair of scissors or knife. Spoon creme fraiche or sour cream onto fish and sprinkle with lemon juice. Fresh herbs can be added before or after cooking. Eat straight from package.
