Salmon en papillote


  • 4 (6- to 8-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
  • Cut vegetables, fresh herbs and/or slices of lemon, lime or orange
  • Salt and pepper


    step 1

    Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut 4 large heart-shaped pieces of parchment paper or foil, and place them on a sheet pan. Fold the parchment or foil in half down the middle, place a fillet with its garnishes and seasonings on one side of each, fold the other side over and crimp the rounded edge tightly closed.

    step 2

    Place in oven for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how done you’d like to serve the salmon. The packages should puff up and make for dramatic serving.
