Fish en Papillote

I had this at Martine’s in France many times and I always wanted to try it. It was easy and delicious! Also very versatile for veggies, fish and flavor combos.

1. Watch this video for how to deal the packets. The recipe itself offers pretty useless instructions.

2. More flavor! Try with more onion, maybe some fresh dill (for a greek-ish variant), white wine. I had some thyme that had dried out that was the most dominant flavor, so make sure to add in a strong flavor to avoid being bland. A cajun variant would be delicious too.

3. I overcooked the fish ever so slightly. It wasn’t done at 12 min, but it was overdone at 15. try 13-14 next time.

Excited to try other things en papillote as well!
