  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the salmon into 4 equal pieces. Make 4 parchment packets (note: the fish can alternatively be cooked in foil) by folding 4 large pieces of parchment in half then cutting each into a semi-circle (when the paper is unfolded it will look like a clam shell).
  • Lay the pieces of paper out flat. Rub one side of each with a little olive oil and salt. Place a couple of lemon slices on the oiled surface and put a piece of salmon filet on top. Put several more lemon slices on top of each piece of salmon. Scatter shallots, olives and parsley over each. Season the filets with a little more olive oil, salt, pepper, and few drops of wine. Seal each packet, tightly folding and pleating the edges from one corner around to the opposite side.
  • Place the packets on a baking sheet and cook until the fish is firm, about 15 minutes. Remove the packages from the oven and serve.
