En papillote – French for “in parchment” – is a method of cooking in which the food is put into a folded parchment paper and then baked. Cooking fruits en papillote makes the flavor more intense.
This time we cook in parchment paper. This holds the moisture in, so you get a smooth and juicy combo of flavored fish and summer vegetables. Serve it warm, but beware! You should open it just before eating, so the aroma can do its thing.
This recipe is vegetarian, still protein-rich and, oh, so scrumptious. Spike it with jalapeno and Cajun seasoning and increase its creaminess factor with feta cheese. It pairs fine with the flaky phyllo wrapping.
Baking fruits into folded pouches means that all the aromas you choose to bring together stay there. Here we’ve mixed juicy or creamy fruits with butter, chocolate, or walnuts. We’ve sweetened them and flavored them with rum, peach liqueur, and citrus juice. You can think about other, maybe even more interesting combinations.
Hold together all the aromas of the foods you’re preparing by cooking them “en papillote”. Here, for example, each package holds its own scrumptious combination of tastes and flavors. Asparagus, potato and other vegetables are enhanced with BBQ sauce, olive oil, pesto, taco seasoning, and cheese. And they are all meant to highlight the chicken breast.
Surprise your guests with these flavor-preserving parchment paper pouches. They all have shrimp in them, but each one flavors it in a different way. Asparagus, tomatoes and other vegetable goodies, paired with citrus slices and olive oil. So, do you have 25 minutes?
