Wash produce before use
Soak the mushrooms
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Juice the lime; set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] for the mango-cucumber salad.
While the mushrooms soak, start preparing the parchment packets.
Assemble the parchment packets
- Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions. Cut 2 scallions in half crosswise for the salmon; thinly slice the remaining scallion on the diagonal for garnish. [Cut 4 scallions in half crosswise for the salmon; thinly slice the remaining 2 scallions for garnish.]
- Remove the mushrooms, reserving the soaking liquid. Discard the stems and coarsely chop the mushroom caps.
Working with 1 sheet at a time, bring 2 opposite sides of the parchment to the center and fold them together several times to create a tight seam. Fold up each end to form a tight seal.
Bake the packets
While the packets bake, prepare the mango-cucumber salad.
Make the mango-cucumber salad
- If desired, strip the cilantro leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the cilantro. Set aside half for garnish.
- Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Trim the top and bottom of the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh into two halves away from the pit. Thinly slice the halves crosswise.
- Juice the lime.
- Stir the seasoning and mushrooms.
- Toss the mango-cucumber salad.
- Garnish with the cilantro and scallions.
