Salmon-Vegetable Bake

We have lots of salmons thanks to my husband's fishing trip in Kenai. Found this recipe in New Cookbook. Healthy and yummy!

1 pound fresh or frozen salmon
2 cups thinly sliced carrots (4 medium)
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups sliced green onions (4)
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 cloves garlic, halved
4 tsp olive oil
lime juice (optional)

    Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse, pat dry with paper towel. Cut into four serving-size pieces.
    In a small saucepan, cook carrots in a small amount of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain.
    Tear off four 24-inch pieces of 18-inch-wide heavy foil. Fold each in half to make four 18*12-inch pieces.
    In a large bowl combine carrots, mushrooms, green onions, oregano, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, garlic, toss gently.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Divide vegetables among the four pieces of foil, place vegetables in center of each piece. Place on fish piece on top of each vegetable portion. Drizzle 1 tsp olive oil over each fish piece. Sprinkle lightly with additional salt and pepper. Bring together two opposite foil edges and seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges together to completely enclose the food, allowing space for steam to build. Place the foil packets in a single layer in a large baking pan.
    Bake about 30 minutes. To serve, transfer the packets to dinner plates. Sprinkle with lime juice if desired.
