Easy and healthy fish en papillote

En papillote is a French style of cooking in which the food (fish, chicken or vegetables) is put into a folded parchment paper (Aluminum foil paper can be used as well) . The paper holds in the moisture while cooking the food while less or no oil is required thus making it a healthy way of cooking.

I decided to do a trout en papillote with fennel which was incredibly moist and tasty


Trout fillet or any other fish or your choice
2 tbs of olive oil
Juice from one lemon
Salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic crushed
1 Fennel sliced
A few thyme leaves


Wash fish and pat dry
Place slices of Fennel on parchment paper add a little bit of salt
Put fish on top of fennel slices rub with salt , pepper and garlic
Add lemon juice and drizzle with olive oil and place thyme leaves on top
Fold parchment paper on all sides to close it like a parcel
Place on a tray and bake at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 mins
