Asian salmon en papillote

The aromatic smell that out of these fish parcel as you open them is deliciously tempting,instead of salmon fillet you could use thick fillet or halibut.






Ingredients:
- 1 carrot
- 1 zucchini
- 6 scallion/green onion
- 2 tbsp pickled ginger strip
- 1 lime
- 2 garlic clove/grated
- 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce or fish sauce
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 4 salmon fillet 6 or 7 ounce each
-  salt + ground black pepper


Preparation :
cut zucchini,carrot,scallions into matchstick, mix them with pickled ginger strip,set aside
place the teriyaki sauce or fish sauce into a bowl stir in lime juice,garlic and sesame oil

preheat the oven on 400 F
cut four of parchment paper,each with diameter of 16 inches
season the salmon with salt and pepper
lay a pile of vegetables mixture on the center lay fillet on top
and topping with more vegetable mixture on top
spoon a quarter of teriyaki sauce mixture or fish sauce mixture over the top

fold the side of parchment paper over the salmon and roll the edge of parchment paper over the seal each parcel very tightly.

place the salmon parcel on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for about 15-18 minutes or depending on the thickness of the fillet

put the parcel on plate and serve with rice or serve the fillet on top of rice



In Asian country like Indonesia,Singapore and Malaysia with large banana leaves widely available across the archipelago,Indonesian has long learnt to use them in food preparation ( like this en papillote recipe ) they will use banana leaves instead of parchment paper. The leaves are use to wrap food before cooking it,either by steaming or grilling.
