Salmon and Tomatoes en Papillote
If you are looking for an easy summer-time meal that will bring in rave reviews, this is it! I mentioned earlier that I had been a bit lax in my participation in French Fridays with Dorie. This is one of the recipes listed last month that participants were to prepare. I was in the market for something different for dinner and this appealed to me. I had tons of basil, grape tomatoes, lemons and thyme so I just needed a trip to the market for the salmon.
What an easy preparation this was! I layered everything on heavy duty foil and folded up the sides to make little packages and then placed them on a baking sheet. Since it has been very hot here and the salmon is cooked at a high temperature, 475° F., I knew that heating the oven would make the house as hot as the outside! The Kitchen Gnome took the baking sheet to the BBQ and we baked the salmon outside. It turned out perfectly.
Goodness was this delicious!
The recipe is in Around My French Table, by Dorie Greenspan. Or, you can find it here. Dorie has graciously posted it on her webpage.
This is the perfect recipe if you are in a hurry and want a good meal and don't have tons of time to prepare it! Did I say this was delicious? Everyone around the table loved it!
