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 :))

  • Some mixed dried herbs
  • Seasalt, Black pepper, lemon juice and zest
Method
  1. Cut 2 sheets of parchment paper, 12 ft square.
  2. Boil the potatoes util just tender.  Drain. peel off the skin and cut into quarters
  3. Blanch the French beans , drain and set aside.
  4. Divide the potatoes between  the two squares of parchment paper, add in some sprinkling of sea salt.
  5. Put a piece of Salmon on top.  Add some lemon zest, a dash of pepper and some sea salt.
  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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!
