Kids kitchen skills:
- baking in parchment
- making a sauce
- measuring spoons
- parchment paper
- small bowl
- baking sheet
- Preheat the oven to 350*. In a small bowl, mix together the ginger root, garlic, soy sauce, lemon juice, honey, and sesame oil.
- Lay out four squares of parchment paper on your countertop. Center one salmon fillet on each piece of parchment paper. Top each fillet with a tablespoon of the sauce and a slice of lemon. Fold the edges of the paper over several times to seal the salmon into a parchment paper envelope. Place the sealed packets onto a baking sheet.
- Bake the salmon until it is opaque and slightly flaky, about 20 to 25 minutes.
- To serve, place each packet onto a separate plate. Carefully cut open the paper when you're ready to eat. Pass the remaining sauce or extra soy sauce at the table.
