Salmon and Vegetable En Papillote

I have always been intrigued by this dish, and thought it was hard like a lot of dishes with a French name, but recently tried it after seeing a recipe on Bon Appetit. It is also a fun dish to make with a child, as you can assemble all the fillings and let them fill them and make the little parcels. The cool thing is taking it out of the oven and opening to a delicious meal, complete with salmon and vegetables, just like opening a present. 


  • 2 pieces of salmon to make two parcels
  • 1/2 a zucchini and 1/2 squash thinly sliced
  • 2 slices of lemon
  • a dash of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon of white wine
  • 8-10 leaves of fresh basil
  • 8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 6 slices of sweet red or yellow pepper
  • handful of spinach 
  • a sprig of oregano

  1. add one piece of salmon, a few slices of zucchini and squash, salt and pepper, a couple of slices of pepper, spinach and oregano olive oil, basil, wine, a few cherry tomatoes and fold
  2. see picture for how to fold and clip below :-) 

As I watch this I am smiling as my wee guy is under the dining table and I have a camera on my back taking quick pictures :-). One day as the kids grow my blogs pictures will shine but as you see these guys are priority right now :-)
