Salmon and Tomatoes en Papillote - French Fridays With Dorie


Yay! It's Friday ....it's FFWD and today's recipe is Salmon and Tomatoes en Papillote ....and you know why I am so happy....salmon being my favorite fish and favorite way of cooking fish....en papillote !!!   I have all the ingredients at home - I have basil and rosemary herbs in my garden....all I have to do is just pluck a few sprigs from the garden and I am ready to go !   Dorie's recipe is always simple and I love the taste of the rosemary and basil infused gravy that comes from baking the salmon en papillote...so flavorful and tasty....LOVE it !   Cooking fish or meat in papillote has its advantage...the fish/meat remains moist and the flavor will be sealed in making this dish ' Heavenly '

This can be prepared a day or two earlier.  If you have univited guests for dinner, this would be great. Simple and easy to prepare...less washing and it taste wonderful...you will have your guests licking off the last drop of gravy from their individual papillote :p   That was what I did !!!....not a drop left in my papaillote !  The technique and combination of ingredients went well with the salmon.  I have never used basil leaves for salmon and this is the first time and the herb infused gravy was not only sweet ( natural sweetness of the salmon ) but so flavorful too.  I pan roasted the tomatoes with a dash of mixed herbs and olive oil till the skin crinkled before I put them together with the salmon.  





















I substituted lemon with grapefruit and it was a great combo for the salmon. I cannot describe how wonderful this salmon is .....







I am so glad that I joined FFWD and I can now cook  my way through Around My French Table with joy ! It is more fun to cook the same recipe with Dorie's fan from around the world and we can compare notes after posting up the dish :))   Do check out on all the other Doristas here and see their presentation of  this Salmon and Tomatoes en Papillote.


Have a wonderful FFWD Day !
and Thank you Dorie for
this wonderful recipe...I Love It!!!
