No Mess Fish Parcels

For perfect salmon in a hurry look no further than these easy wrapped delights

The fish parcels are quick to prepare and can be wrapped ahead of time and cooked when needed. Serve with hot rice, a green vegetable — such as steamed bok choy — and you’re ready to go. For those who can’t drag themselves away from the television, serve them in bowls so they’re easy to eat on your knees, or be a little more civilised and sit around the table.
