Fish en Papilliote
  • En papilliote is simply fish wrapped in paper and steamed.
  • This easy and quick recipe works well with most fish. Some of my favorites are salmon and halibut.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees


  • 2 -8oz. fillets of fish, skinned
  • 4 asparagus spears
  • 2 large florets of broccoli
  • 6 green beans
  • 2 slices of red onion
  • 2 slices each of red, orange, and yellow peppers
    (you can use almost any vegetable you like or any combination you like)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets of parchment paper (foil is an option also, especially if you want use the grill).

  • Julienne all of the vegetables. Place in a small bowl,
  • add olive oil, salt, pepper, and squeeze one half of the lemon into the mix.
  • Fold the parchment paper in half, and then unfold it.
  • Place the fish on the top half of the paper with the bottom edge of the fillet on the crease.
  • Divide vegetable mix in half and place each half onto each fillet.
  • Fold the paper over the fish and vegetables so that the edges of the paper meet.
  • Starting in one corner, roll the edges tightly together around the fish, until a closed pouch is formed.
  • Fold the final corner very tight or you can use a paper clip to seal the package.
  • Place the package on a pan and bake 15 to 18 minutes.
  • Remove fish from the oven. It can be served and eaten directly in the paper or slid onto a serving plate.
