Parisienne Snapper with Vegetables is Deliciously Simple Fish En Papillote

Cooking “en papillote” is a classic French technique where food is enclosed in a parchment and baked or grilled. It steams the food in its own moisture, helping to preserve nutrients and flavor. Very little oil, or even no oil, is needed. But we do think just a little really helps the taste and texture!

This parchment style baking works extremely well with fish, like this Parisienne Snapper, but you can also use this technique on poultry. In fact, you can substitute another type of fish fillet or chicken for the snapper. Just make sure the meat is fully cooked through.

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

  4. On the right half of each parchment sheet, layer ¼ of the vegetable mixture and 1 snapper fillet. Brush each snapper fillet with ½ teaspoon oil. Sprinkle each fillet with approximately ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper.
  5. Fold the left side of each parchment sheet over the snapper and vegetable mixture. Fold the edges several times to seal tightly.
