Salmon en papillote

A very nice and easy supper, steaming salmon (or any other fish to be honest) with plenty of spices and accompanying it with some boiled greens allows me to have a non-fuss healthy dinner with plenty of flavour. For more options, try adding other ingredients (red peppers, spinach, carrots to name a few) or varying the fish. Trout or cod would also be nice.

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 stick of celery, finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • juice from half a lime
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • green beans, to serve with

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Cut two pieces of foil and lay each salmon fillet in the middle.
  3. Drizzle with the sesame oil, mirin, soy sauce and lime juice.
  4. Scatter the red chillies on top and add the spring onions and the celery slices.
  5. Wrap the foil around the filling so as to make a small parcel and make sure you crimp the edges and seal it properly.
  6. Lay on a baking tray and cook for about 15 minutes.
  7. Take them out of the oven and let them rest for another 5 minutes before opening on the plate and serving up with some freshly boiled greens.
