East Meets West: Whole Fish En Papillote

En papillote is french which means to wrap in paper  (fancy right?!).  Back home, there is a Chinese dish called 纸包鸡 which is paper wrapped baked chicken. The methodology is similar as it uses the principle of creating a vacuum and steam to cook whatever is wrapped inside the hot parcel. Personally, I love using this technique to cook fish because its almost 100% foolproof. Once you get the fundamentals, the rest is easy peasy. You can see the re-cording I did on Kittch here.


You’ll also need parchment paper, tin foil and a baking tray large enough for the fish.
