Something we never really tried before, but really delicious: Papillote! Another great BBQ dish you can try out this summer to please your guests or family! It can be served as a starter or as a main dish. We found this one in a cookbook called ‘’Papillotes’’ written by Sandra Mahur.
What do you need?
Sweet soy sauce
Dried porcini mushrooms
NOTE: amounts don’t really matter. You add what you like.
It all begins with your pieces of tin foil brushed with sesame oil. Once you have finished that it’s very simple: put everything in your papillote!
First, you place a piece of salmon on the tinfoil. After, you just add the rest: some fine cut ginger, little pieces of dried porcini mushrooms, seaweed (Nori sheets), spring onions, sesame seeds and last but not least coriander! Of course: don’t forget to season with some salt and pepper.
NOTE: before using your dried mushrooms, let them soak in warm water for half an hour. Squeeze and cut them.
To finish, add 1 coffee spoon of Mirin sauce and 1 coffee spoon of sweet soy sauce. Mirin sauce has a sweet flavor which makes it a nice contrast when used with saltier sauces like soy or tamari. It’s an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine. This was not mentioned in the recipe, but we gave it a try!
NOTE: we just added 1 spoon of each, which is not that much, if you like more sauce/liquor you can add more.
Wrap it up and put it on your BBQ. It just needs 15 minutes!
