Citrus Baked Salmon En Papillote
It seems the trendy way to cook fish this spring is en papillote! I totally threw this together for a caribbean inspired meal! And I am so proud. 🙂
All of this is approximate depending on the size of your fish. My fish was about 24 oz,
Mix the following:
Melted butter (about a Tbs max)
Few shakes of cinnamon
Few shakes of oregano
Sea Salt – not too much.
A bit of squeezed orange juice, so that your rub isn’t completely dry.
Rinse the fish, then pat dry. Place the fish on a ~12×12 inch piece of foil or parchment paper, and lavishly spread the rub all over the fish. Throw some wedges of the orange that you zested around the fish and some parsley just to make it pretty. Place another piece of foil the same size on top and roll each edge to close the fish.
Bake for ~17 minutes at 400 degrees (bake time depends on size of fish). Make sure to open your papillote away from you so you don’t get doused in hot steam! Use a fork to make sure the salmon flakes. If it doesn’t flake it isn’t ready yet (wrap it back up and send it in for a bit longer)!
This was DELICIOUS !
