  1. Turn the oven on to 180C. Cut 4 sheets of baking paper big enough to encase each salmon fillet with the vegetables.
  2. Chop the cherry tomatoes into halves, chop the aubergine and courgette into small chunks. Peel and finely slice the shallot, peel the garlic. Thinly slice the potatoes into rounds.
  3. Season the salmon fillets with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together the olive oil, dijon mustard and chilli flakes. Spread the mixture over the salmon fillets on the skin side.
  4. Arrange the potato slices on the baking paper equally between 2 sheets, with 2 whole garlic cloves for each. Lay the salmon on skin side down, then add the chopped vegetables on top of the salmon fillet (some will fall around it).
  5. Lay the remaining baking sheets over the fillets and fold the edges together with the bottom sheet by scrunching them together upwards all the way around. Just before you seal them completely add a generous splash of white wine to the parcels.
  6. When the parcels are sealed, place on a baking tray in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until the salmon is cooked through but still slightly firm. Serve in the parcels with the lambs lettuce garnish.
