27 Recipes – Salmon en Papillote

27-Recipes-Salmon-en-Papillote

I’ve never been a big fish eater, but Michael’s Mum makes amazing salmon, and I’ve been wanting to try cooking salmon myself for a while now. I’ve never cooked salmon before, so I decided that I would try en papillote style, which is basically baking it in a pouch made from baking paper or aluminium foil, so that it steams itself. This serves 2.

My Thoughts

This was my first time ever cooking salmon and I’ve never tried capers before either. I was pleasantly surprised how well this turned out! I liked it with a little extra lemon juice squeezed on top.

Michael’s Thoughts

He was surprised that it turned out so well. He even said he liked it better than when he fries it, or his Mum bakes it, and wants me to cook it a lot more!
