Garlic Rosemary Salmon and Broccoli Packets with Spiralized Potatoes

Garlic Rosemary Salmon and Broccoli Packets with Spiralized Potatoes

If you’re like me and HATE cleaning up, you’re going to love this recipe.

If you’ve never made parchment packets before and you hate cleaning up, you’re in for a treat – and your dinner game will never be the same. You’ll want to make all meals in parchment packets!

I’m always looking for shortcuts for dinner now that I have our little bundle of joy to take care of. When Lu gets home from work, the last thing I want to do is spend all my time cooking dinner. And then, once the baby is down to sleep and we’re eating dinner together, the other last thing I want to be doing is spending 10-15 minutes cleaning the dishes (or making Lu do it!)

Garlic Rosemary Salmon and Broccoli Packets with Spiralized Potatoes

Parchment packets are the busy home cook’s secret little weapon – and frankly, I don’t make them enough! There’s a really great recipe with spiralized butternut squash and halibut in my first cookbook that I love, though!

Basically, you just load your ingredients in the center of a piece of parchment paper and roll it up! The ingredients steam inside for a truly fragrant, flavorful meal. The rosemary and garlic are all you need for flavor!

The potatoes need to be partially cooked before placed in the parchment paper, because 15 minutes isn’t long enough to cook the noodles all the way through. Once that’s done, just layer everything per the recipe instructions, roll up the parchment paper, and bake in the oven! You’ll only have to clean ONE pan (and a pair of tongs!)

I’m always looking for new ways to cook salmon and I enjoyed this for lunch as a light but filling and nutrient dense meal!

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium red potatoes, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • cooking spray
  • salt and pepper
  • 1.5 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 2 (4oz) salmon filets, skinless
  • 1 lemon, sliced into 4 slices
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add the potato noodles, spritz with cooking spray, and season with salt and pepper. Toss and cook for 5 minutes or until beginning to wilt. The potatoes don’t need to cook all the way through, since they will be cooked again with the salmon. Once done, set aside off heat.
  3. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface (like your kitchen countertop or a cutting board.) Place half of the potatoes and broccoli on the middle of the parchment paper and season with salt and pepper. Add two sprigs of rosemary and top with salmon, 2 lemon slices, half of the garlic, and a tablespoon of olive oil. Season with more salt and pepper. Roll the parchment pack up and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make another parchment packet and place on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake until the salmon is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

    I would use sweet potatoes. More flavor and I feel they're healthier. I definately plan to try this recipe!
  2. Great idea for a Vegan meal also TU UR SOOOOOO Talented & Creative I LOVE it
  3. I love the sound of this and I'm going to do it for dinner tomorrow night. I know I'm going to love it!
  4. This sounds great! I love how you're featuring meals with fish! Please continue to do so!
  5. Awesome Ali! Need to try this!!!
  6. Just made this! First of all, SO simple and easy to make!! Second, I am on Whole30 and this meal is compliant (YAY!!) Third, it’s DELICIOUS!!!!! Will be making it again and often :) thank you, Ali!!
  7. Making this tonight! Can’t wait!
  8. I'm wondering if there is another veggie noodle that would cook in the same amount of time as the salmon so it wouldn't have to be pre-cooked as the potato noodles are in this recipe?
  9. Hi! I’m making this tonight, but just realized I only have tinfoil and not parchment paper, can I use that? Thank you!
  10. Hi Ali. I made this tonight and it was great! I had cooked often with foil, but not with parchment and wanted to make that switch for a while now. I was amazed that the broccoli steamed up so nicely! Someone commented that it could be made vegan. Could you suggest a substitute for the salmon? I would love to do this more often, as we are about 98% plant eaters and keep trying to move closer to 100%. Thank you so much!

    I have made this several times now and LOVE it! I think parsnip noodles would also be good. And maybe asparagus in place of broccoli. This dish is versatile, simple, presents well and delicious. One of my 'go to's' for sure!
  12. This was my first Inspiralized dish to prepare, and it was delicious. I was worried the broccoli would not cook as quickly as the other items so made sure to cut into small pieces. It is a delicious combination of flavors and left very little clean up. Will be making this again!
