8ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
4 skinless wild salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
1/4cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut four 12-by-17-inch pieces of parchment. Fold each in half crosswise to make a crease, then unfold and lay flat.
  2. Toss mushrooms, asparagus, and scallions with oil in a bowl. Sprinkle with lemon zest, and season with salt and pepper. Remove asparagus from mixture; divide evenly among parchment pieces, creating a bed of spears on one side of crease. Top each with 1 piece of fish, then with mushroom mixture. Drizzle each
  3. serving with 1 tablespoon water. Fold parchment over ingredients, creating a half-moon shape. Make small overlapping pleats to seal the open sides.
  4. Bake on 2 rimmed baking sheets until packets are puffed, 9 minutes (fish should be partially opaque in the middle). Open packets, squeeze with lemon, and serve immediately.
