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.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
