How to Make Baked Salmon in Papillote

  1. The first thing we need is to go and cut all the vegetables we are going to use to make salmon on the papillote. The idea is to cut all of them in poles or strips of similar size. The julienne cuts us for peppers, carrots or onions, and for almost all the vegetables that we can use.
  2. If we have a silicone case, we put the cut vegetables in the bottom. Add a pinch of salt, a dash of white wine, a dash of olive oil and a splash of water. If we do not have a case, we have to do it with baking paper. Cut a piece about 60×30 cm and fold it in half. Put the vegetable on the side and season it.
  3. Then place the salmon cut into pieces of about 50 or 60 g on the vegetable, proceeding to close the silicone case or to close the baking paper case with folds to ensure that it will be more or less tight.
  4. If you cook it in the microwave oven will take about 4 minutes at maximum power. If using the conventional oven, it has to be preheated to 200 ° C and then it will be necessary to have the papillote in the oven for about 15 minutes. Be careful when opening the package that the vapors can cause burns.
