After nine days in Hawaii enjoying all sorts of sashimi and poke, I was surprised today when I was craving fish. After an amazing workout at Taylor Fit Studio where Taylor absolutely kicked my butt, I headed over to Safeway to see what I could pull together to fulfill my fish craving.
I headed over to the grocery store to see what we could come up with. I found some delicious boneless petrale sole fillets at the fish counter and grabbed two (along with some ahi poke they had- yummmm!) Then I headed over to the produce aisle and grabbed a few more ingredients- thyme, dill, grape tomatoes, onions, kalamata olives (from the olive bar at Safeway).
I have to say– the fish turned out absolutely amazing. It was a perfectly light, but savory and filling all at the same time. I’ve wanted to try cooking fish “en papillote” for quite some time. “En papillote (French for “in parchment”), or al cartoccio in Italian, is a method of cooking in which the food is put into a folded pouch or parcel and then baked. The parcel is typically made from folded parchment paper, but other material, such as a paper bag or aluminium foil, may be used.” – according to wikipedia. It is much easier than I expected it to be and really allowed the flavors of the tomatoes, lemon/lime, olives, and capers really seep into the sole.
