Papillote anyone?

I just saw the most recent Costco magazine and there is a short article in there about using parchment paper for making a bag and cooking with the food sealed up in it. I've not had any experience with this method and was wondering what it is all about.

If any of you use this method and can suggest some recipes, I'd be most appreciative.

Here's a how-to on cooking in parchment and also some recipes. It's not all that different from cooking in foil packets.

RE: Papillote anyone?

I have done it lots of "recipe"....just put something that is quick cooking, like a some chicken breast or skinless thigh or a piece of salmon or cod or a slice or 2 of diver scallops....the meat should be no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick, add seasonings and some veggies and fold it up in a piece of oiled parchment and bake it at 425 for about 20 minutes.
Things like a 4 inch square of cod fillet, a skinny slice of a lemon, 3 or 4 skinny asparagus spears, bit of salt and a bit of pepper....
Or a piece of bone less skin less chicken, skinny slice of sweet onion and a couple of spears of broccoli and a few carrot buttons....and a slice of lemon....and a bit of butter.

It's all so easy and looks very elegant....and as long as what you put in the packets will cook in 10 to 20 minutes, it all works.

I had some fish cooked that way when visiting was so good.
