Dukan Sake Salmon en Papillote

HE SAID:  Good, but doesn't care for baby bok choy
SHE SAID: Very good, but needed more sake

Sake Salmon En Papillote
This week as Costco shopping week and we love the huge slab of salmon in the "fresh" section of Costco, not the frozen pieces.  The fish is previously frozen, but it tastes great.  This week we also discovered "en papillote" cooking...we've seen it and we did something similar with our foil packet crock pot fish recipes on this site, but we never tried the parchment paper way.  After researching several recipes and "how to's", we decided to cook our salmon this way.  This was another great article about en papillote.

Although we overcooked our packets, these turned out great and we're looking forward to cooking this way with other sauces and flavors.  This recipe was very mild in flavor, if you're looking for something with more flavor try using fish sauce, more spices, miso paste, etc.  

Serves 2
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 8-10 minutes (this is the adjusted time)

3 - 2" wide pieces of salmon filets, rinse and pat dry
4 bunches of baby bok choy or other greens, rinsed and chopped
1 can straw mushrooms (or any other mushrooms), rinsed
salt and pepper
6 T. sake (or dry white wine)
1 inch piec of garlic, sliced thinly
3-5 green onions, sliced
3 - 15 inch pieces of parchment paper cut into heart shapes

Sake Salmon En Papillote (Before)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  In the center of one half of parchment paper is where you want to place your food.  Layer a couple slices of garlic, then mushrooms, then greens.  Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, pour 1 T. sake on the pile of food then a couple more slices of ginger, the fish, more salt and pepper, another T. of sake, then top the pile with green onions.

Close parchment paper, place in baking pan.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients.  Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Enjoy...we sure did!
