    Good advice on blanching the beans a bit. This was yummy and quick!

    I made these last night for my family and they were EXCELLENT! I did blanche the green beans as jaceyjo suggested in an earlier post...definately do that. The beans were crisp, tender, perfect. The salmon was moist and fragrant from the lemon peel. I had one extra packet and my husband and teenage son were fighting over the remainders. ;-)

    Just made these little packets and the flavor was so good! I blached the green beans for about 30 seconds before and they came out perfect.

    The 12-15 minutes of baking time in the oven was not enough time to fully cook the green beans. I would recommend blanching or par-boiling them first, and then baking with the salmon to avoid over cooking the fish. Overall a tasty dish, I served it with roasted fingerling potatoes.
