Healthy Fish en Papillote is a mouth-watering delicious recipe and comes together in just under 30 minutes.
Tender, flavor-packed fish, and in this recipe I added Asian flavors, with hoisin, ketjap manis, garlic in a light lemony sauce, all cooked together with a pak choi in parchment parcels. Absolute delight.
Perfect for weeknight dinners as it is for impressing guests. Everybody like to open presents. Plus, the beautiful aroma and site of the slightly saucy fish and veggies as you split open the parchment is simply irresistible!
Fish En Papillote. Pronounced “ahn-pa-pee-yawt”. Don’t you feel fancy just saying it? Despite what its elegant name might suggest, this method of baking fish in parchment paper packets is one of the easiest, most foolproof methods to cook fish.
‘En papillote’ means wrapped in a parcel and ensures that everything stays moist as it cooks in its own steam. It’s also a method that won’t leave your house smelling like a fish market,
When baked en papillote, fish fillets like cod, halibut, snapper, trout, or even salmon, cook very quickly and come out tender, moist, and flavorful. I used cod back fillet in my recipe.
