Cooking fish 'En Papillotte' (in paper) allows the fish to steam, ensuring that all of the cooking juices are retained and that the bag traps all the flavour of the fish infusing it further. A fuss free way to cook salmon and be sure that you will not over cook it. You can use this method of cooking for any fish fillet and you can cook individual parcels of a shared one like this recipe. Open at the table so you do not miss out on the effect of the releasing fragrance. Great for a dinner party, as you can make up the parcels before the guests arrive


  • 2 medium courgettes
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 2tbsp fresh oregano leaves
  • 80g baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 350-400g salmon fillet
  • tsp black pepper corns
  • 100ml white wine
