Salmon En Papillote (salmon cooked in parchment)

Salmon En Papillote...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. Here is an easy and delicious recipe for stuffed salmon in parchment paper.


2 salmon filets, with skin 
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons capers, drained
2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut two large pieces of parchment paper and set aside.

In small bowl, mix garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, paprika, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place salmon filets on one piece of parchment paper. Drizzle with garlic and lemon mixture. Sprinkle with parsley, capers, and drizzle butter.

Top with other parchment paper and fold the edges together to form a sealed pouch. Place the pouch on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.

Serve the salmon in the parchment pouch wrapped with a ribbon or kitchen string, or carefully slide onto a plate. Enjoy!
