When you want to sound like a Michelin-starred chef, but don’t really want to put the work into “julienning” or cooking “sous vide,” cooking “en papillote” is the way to go. That’s French for, “No dishes to wash, but still totally juicy, delicious and easy.”

Cooking in papillote is simply cooking in a parchment paper bag. Creating a parchment paper package prevents its ingredients, especially fish, from drying out and helps all flavors marinate together. The best part is the easy cleaning: just unwrap the parchment paper and fill the food. Children will enjoy unwrapping them as gifts on the table. We decided to make things even easier and put together our favorite parchment pack recipes, ready in 20 minutes or less!
