Salmon fillets placed on a bed of vegetables, wrapped in a parchment paper pouch (en papillote) and baked in the oven. The fish is also topped with basil compound butter for extra flavor!
I was noodling around in the kitchen looking for a dinner idea that could be made within 30 minutes. So I dug deep into those foggy memory banks from my time in culinary school and had an Aha! moment. Have you ever tried to make salmon en papillote? It’s the French way of saying “in parchment,” but it sounds more impressive and romantic in the language of love.
This recipe is easy to make. The paper pouch steams the salmon and vegetables for a healthy and flavorful meal. Sounds like a wish I would make with a magical genie! We’re all strapped for time during the week, but this delicious meal can fit right into your weekday dinner rotation….
