What is Fish En Papillote?

The name is fancy, and I doubt I pronounce it correctly! It’s a French dish and is pronounced ahn-pa-pee-yawt).

To break it down, it’s Fish in Paper! In simple words, fish cooked in parchment paper.

So, Fish En Papillote in simple dish when fish fillet is wrapped in parchment paper with flavors and vegetables of your choice and then baked in the oven.

Fish En Papillote (3 different flavors)

The 3 different flavors I used are:

  • Miso
  • Pesto – Here is my recipe for Homemade Pesto prepared with assorted variety of greens
  • Mustard

With all these flavors, I added few vegetables, and it was a quick prep.

Marinating the Fish

I always feel marination is highly important for the flavors to go deep. All you need is just 15 minutes to marinate the fish is the sauce or just salt and pepper.

What to pair with the dish?

When fish is cooked in parchment paper, a lot of the juice gets accumulated at the bottom. We like to some enjoy it with couple slices of bread to soak up all that juice.

Rice is a great option too, or couscous.

Here is a recipe of Tilapia En Papillote that I had shared earlier.

But most of the time, we enjoy this dish just as it is may be with a little bit of salad on the side.

Can you prepare this dish in Aluminum Foil?

I think you absolutely can do that, and I have done that, but some article says it may not be a good idea as it might be bad for health.

So, if you can do try using parchment paper.

The best part of Fish En Papillote is that it needs to special cookware and most days, we eat straight from the parchment paper, so dishwashing needed as well.

A great meal option for days when you want to relax but enjoy a good home cooked meal.
