Chef Nuetzi’s Shiitake Salmon en Papillote

I noticed his recipe for Salmon en Papilotte is featured in the new Capitalle Grille Newsletter (but is not hosted on their site, linking wasn’t possible.) Posting it here should solve that. I’m looking forward to bringing more salmon information and ideas back from Alaska. Until then, this will get you started.

Now, here’s Chef Nuetzi’s recipe:

More than simply a unique combination of flavors, this recipe combines two unique cultures. Typically a French dish, Chef Nuetzi has infused this Salmon en Papillote with distinctively Asian ingredients to create a surprising and memorable entrée. Serve in the parchment bags they’re cooked in for a presentation that would be dramatic in any culture.


Ingredients (serves 10)
8 inch Parchment Circles 8 ea

  • Wild King Salmon 8, 8-oz portions
  • Julienne Scallion (white portion) 1 C

1. Warm the lemon zest, lemon juice, fresh ginger, star anise and white soy over low heat

12. Place the fish in parchment on a clean baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes
13. Remove from the oven, open the parchment and serve (be careful when opening the parchment, there will be large amounts of steam)
