  1. Can i make the salmon packet around lunch time and bake them off of a party later?
    I dont want to spend all the party in the kitchen. I want to make sure the spinach and cream cheese doesn't turn the packets into a saggy mess.

  2. What temperature should the oven be? Also is it necessary to have the baking sheet with aluminum? Thanks for the replies.

    1. The temperature was displayed in the video...(400f) You don't have to have aluminum.

  3. Hi Steve, thank you very much for the awesome recipes!! Can I substitute fresh spinach with frozen spinach? Thanks!

  4. Hi steve! Can I substitute Chicken instead of Salmon? Thanks and Merry Christmas!
