Salmon En Papillote


Salmon En Papillote simply means wrapping a piece of Salmon in parchment paper, folding up the paper like a little parcel and then baked, bag and all.  This one-dish meal is not only easy to preprare, it's nutritious too. The Salmon is moist and tasty with some baked potatoes, just what you need for a complete one-dish meal.  Most important of all ..... less cleaning up :))





Recipe for Salmon En Papillote  (adapted from an ASDA magazine with modifications)

  • 300 gm Salmon fillet
  • 300 gm potatoes
  • 150 gm French beans
  • Some mixed dried herbs

  6. Wrap up the parchment paper leaving room inside for the air to move around.  Fold to seal the edges tightly.

    1. I didn't bake the veggie, just blanch them, if baked, they won't look so green.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
