Ingredients

16 oz  salmon fillet
2 cup  sliced carrots
2 cup  fresh mushroom slices
4 each  fresh green onions
2 tsp  grated orange peel
2 tsp  fresh oregano
0 1/4 tsp  salt
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
4 each  medium garlic cloves
4 tsp  olive oil
2 each  medium oranges
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels and set fish aside.
  3. In a covered small saucepan, cook carrots in a small amount of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Tear off four 24x18-inch pieces of heavy foil. Fold each in half to make an 18x12-inch rectangle.
  5. In a large bowl combine carrots, mushrooms, green onions, orange peel, oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss gently to combine.
  6. Divide vegetables among the 4 pieces of foil, placing in center. Place fish on top of vegetables. Drizzle fish with oil.
  7. Sprinkle lightly with additional salt and pepper; top with orange slices. For each packet, bring together 2 opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold.
  8. Fold remaining ends to completely enclose food, allowing space for steam to build.
  9. Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes or until carrots are tender and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
