My 450-pound dad had been in every diet known to man — Akins, Weight Watcher’s, The Cabbage Soup Diet, The Tapeworm Diet. When nothing worked his bosses at McCann Erickson ad agency sent him on a six-month paid medical leave to the “Fat Farm” at Duke University, where he would be expected to lose a significant amount of weight on the popular Rice Diet. He lost 175 pounds eating rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The morning bowl had a miniscule piece of canned peach, the lunch serving had a small portion of dry chicken and the evening bowl included a serving of broiled salmon. When he came home he vowed never to eat rice again but was looking for flavorful staples that would keep his newly trimmed body svelte. This parchment paper salmon became his favorite — even my mom, who hated domestic chores, found this manageable — placing all the ingredients in a foil pack and baking. Voilà, an instant meal, with no clean up.

I was in New York last week so I know firsthand what sort of spring the east coast has had. I was more than happy to shed my winter wardrobe and return to the balmy warmth of Israel, where spring has fully sprung. Since the growing seasons here tend to be a bit ahead of the States, I have a preview of what will be hitting American farmer’s markets any day now: artichokes, fava beans, asparagus, and the like.
