Poisson en Papillote
"I spoke of the Poisson en Papillote earlier for the campfire cooking method. You can use this recipe either in the oven, or on a light campfire. (If cooking on the campfire, ensure you double wrap the package in tinfoil)"
1 whole "Poisson", cleaned and descaled
1 lemon, sliced in rounds
½ bunch chives (or forage for those wild onions!)
½ zucchini, cut in ½ circles
½ red pepper, diced
1 tab of butter
Layer the lemon, chive, zucchini and red pepper on the bottom of the parchment paper. Season with salt and pepper.
Add a few slices of lemon to the inside of the fish, along with a few sprigs of chive. Place tab of butter on top and season well. Fold the package to create a tight seal.
Bake at 350C for 10-12 minutes (size of fish will vary)
Or place on top of glowing embers for 8-10 minutes or until pouch is filled with steam.
Voila! Chef du Poisson!
