Salmon en Papillote – Nicky’s Kitchen Sanctuary

Cooking salmon in little paper parcels with a lot of aromatic elements is a good way to make a fast dinner that’s slightly bit completely different. The sauce within the parcels tastes wonderful drizzled over rice or noodles.

Overhead of two salmon fillets cooked in individual baking parchment parcels with slices of chilli, peppers, babycorn, carrot and spring onion. Also topped with wedges of lime. The parcels are open, on a wooden board on a light background. There is a dish of sesame seeds and some lime wedges nearby.


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gasoline mark 6 (fan).

  • In a small bowl, combine collectively the sunflower oil, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, and honey.

    2 tsp impartial oil, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 garlic clove, 1.5 tbsp mild soy sauce, 1.5 tbsp honey

  • Take two giant items of baking parchment, fold each in half, and reduce right into a semi-circle. Unfold and place on a baking tray (sheet).

  • Place a salmon fillet , skin-side-down, inside every of the parchment circles, sitting them on the fold line.

    2 skin-on salmon fillets

  • Prepare the pink pepper, child corn, and carrot across the salmon fillets.

    ½ pink bell pepper, 100 g (3.5 oz) contemporary child corn, 1 small carrot

  • Scrunch up the perimeters of the parchment circles slightly (so the sauce doesn’t run out) and spoon the soy combination over the salmon fillets, then prepare the sliced chilli on prime.

  • Deliver the 4 corners of the parchment paper collectively and fold them over a number of instances, then twist so the paper is totally sealed. Be certain there are not any gaps for the sauce to flee from.

  • Place the baking tray (sheet) within the oven and prepare dinner for 18 minutes, till the salmon is tender.

  • Open up the parcels rigorously (steam will escape) and sprinkle over the sliced spring onion and sesame seeds and nestle in a few lime wedges.

✎ Notes


  • Swap the salmon in your favorite chunky fish. Cod and lemon sole each work nice.
  • Add sliced mange tout and/or asparagus (I often do not add inexperienced greens to the parcels, as they lose their vibrant color when steaming within the parcels, however they nonetheless style nice).
  • Add a tablespoon of sriracha for a spicier kick.

Prep forward
You may make up the parcels, then place on a tray within the fridge as much as 3 hours forward.
Bake as per the recipe when able to eat.
*guarantee your parchment is not too skinny, because the sauce will soak via it if left for too lengthy.
