Seafood en Papillote
Serves as many as you like!
  • Salmon fillets
  • Prawns, deveined but leave the shells on
  • Live mussels / clams, cleaned and de-beard (for mussels)
  • Other preferred seafood
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Lemon slices
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees Celsius.
  2. Making a parcel per person, lay a large piece of parchment and place the salmon fillet, prawns, mussels, clams, other seafood and cherry tomatoes and lemon slices in the middle. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold the parchment and wrap it tightly, ensuring it is tightly sealed to prevent the steam from escaping.
  3. Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes, until the parcel is slightly puffed up. Add 1 minute of baking per additional parcel (i.e. if there are 2 parcels, bake for 11 minutes).
  4. Transfer the parcel onto serving plates and serve immediately, opening the parcels in front of your guests!
