Paper Fish

papillote

Sometimes looks can be deceiving. Which is why I’ve never dared tried anything “en papillote” until now. It seemed, well, complicated, fussy—not to mention something I’d watch my husband politely push around on a plate after which he’d probably make himself a steak sandwich. You’re way ahead of me on this one, right? Baking fish in parchment paper is one of the easiest, healthiest and totally delicious ways to get a quick weeknight dinner on the table. Slice up some veggies, wrap it all up in paper and stick in the oven for 10 minutes. Done. And zero clean up. Such a great way to use your summer farmers market haul—squash, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and some shallots. I used this recipe from Bon Appétit, changing up the proportions (I doubled up on veggies) and using dry vermouth instead of white wine. Besides being TOTALLY GORGEOUS, it was really, really good. And nobody made a steak sandwich after. In fact, people requested it again the next night.
