I know, I know,  halibut en papillote sounds difficult and complicated, but trust me it’s not.  It’s is one of the easiest ways to cook delicious fish that turns out perfectly every time.  Basically, you’re wrapping the fish in a parchment paper packet and then steaming it in the oven.  Which makes this method perfect for adding veggies to the mix, which gives you a full meal in one little packet.  Can you say easy clean up?

The presentation of this fish is so impressive that it makes a perfect meal for entertaining.  You can actually prepare the parchment packets a couple hours ahead of time and keep refrigerated. Once your guests arrive, all you have to do is put them in the oven and dinner’s ready in 20 minutes.

By cooking the fish in parchment, this meal is also very healthy, but definitely NOT lacking in flavor.  The quick and easy sauce that gets drizzled over the fish before cooking is amazing.  It’s got just a little hint of heat from the sriracha and the flavors from the ginger and the sesame oil shine through.

I know that halibut can sometimes be on the pricey side.  If you can’t find halibut at a good price, tilapia or cod would make excellent substitutions.  You can also feel free to us whatever combination of veggies that you like, I think zucchini or green beans would also be delicious.
