Fish en Papillote

When my hubs made dinner last week he made a very tasty fish dish cooked in parchment paper.  I’ve used this technique before but I never used the flavors he used.  His dish was flavored with herbs, lemon, and white wine… and it came together beautifully.  I love cooking fish en papillote because it’s fast and easy and makes me feel fancy.  Today I wanted to make this again and tried my best to recreated the flavors from my hubby’s dish.  I’d say it was pretty close. 🙂 I’m not the best at folding the parchment so I’m not even going to try to teach you but here is a good video on how to fold the parchment paper.
