Whole filet "en Papillote"

Thinking of doing a whole filets of Salmon en Papillote. Anyone see a reason why I shouldn't do it? I can't think of any reason why I shouldn't.

Likewise. What are you putting in there with it?

Some places now call it Salmon in a Pillow. I still make it in paper bag or parchment. I tried a little mayo on it and chopped dill and a light squeeze of lemon with a julianne of white of leek. was pretty good.

No reason not to do it, Kuan. Unless you're talking about 30-pound Kings. That could get a little awkward. ;)

I'll try mayo, no lemon but I have lime and onion though :D We'll see how it goes.

Nope KY, no such luck! Hah! That would be a nice problem to have.

Finely sliced red peppers also go wonderfully with salmon en papillote.

Never tried it, but do you think a teriyaki marinade would work en papiotte. I know it wont go sticky as i like it, but maybe the flavour would be intensified?? Maybe with a pak choy, ginger and spring onion base I'm typing, Im liking

This is something I've made but Kuan hans't? Oh my goodness!

I brushed a little vegetable oil on the parchment before I put a nest of finely chopped vegetables on it: carrots, scallions, fresh dill and I can't remember what else. I laid the seasoned salmon filet on the vegetables, then put more of the veggies and herbs on top. Then I sprinkled it with white wine and some chicken broth (I didn't have any fish fumet). Next I sealed it up by folding and finishing with a staple. It was really good.

I used to have it.

One of the very few things I miss about living in northern Illinois was access to that incredible Lake Michigan salmonid fishery: three types of salmon (including, yes, kings to 30 pounds), steelhead, coastal browns and lake trout.
