Salmon en Papillote
  1. 4 salmon fillets
  2. 3/4 cup fennel bulb, diced
  3. 3/4 cup carrots, diced
  4. 3/4 cup snow peas, halved
  5. 1 sprig thyme
  6. 8 lemon slices
  7. 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  8. 2 egg whites
  9. Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take four sheets of parchment paper and fold in 1/2 like a book. Draw a large 1/2 heart on paper with fold of paper being the center of the heart. Cut out heart and open. Lay fennel, carrots, and snow peas on parchment in center to 1 side of fold. Season the veggies with salt and pepper.
  3. Lay salmon on top of vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Top with the thyme, lemons, and wine. Brush the egg white along the outline of the heart. Fold other side of heart over fish and starting at top of heart shape, fold up both edges of parchment, overlapping folds as you move along. Once you reach the end tip, twist several times to secure tightly.
  4. Place on a sheet pan and place in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes. Blog
