En Papillote Sweet Chili Coconut Sole

En Papillote Sweet Chili Coconut Sole

One of my favourite ways to cook delicate fillets of fresh caught Pacific white fish is an old French method called “En Papillote” (literally “in parchment“). The fish is steamed with whatever flavours and accompaniments you desire and everything comes out perfectly tender and delicious.  For recipe #5 in the Thai Kitchen Canada #TKLucky7 Lucky Recipe Challenge, I created this En Papillote Sweet Chili Coconut Sole. For recipe 1recipe 2recipe 3 and recipe 4, see links.

Delicate, flaky fillets of sole are paired with in season winter vegetables (in this case, Brussels sprouts, carrots and sweet fennel) and coated in a delightfully creamy lite coconut milk sauce flavoured with fresh lemongrass, earthy Turmeric and Thai Kitchen’s Sweet Red Chili Sauce for a light and refreshing meal. This meal is ready in less then 30 minutes and can easily be doubled for larger families. Change up the vegetables if you are making this in the spring, summer or fall and you can have a completely different meal every season.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, sweet chili sauce, turmeric and salt until combined, then add in the chunks of lemongrass.
  2. Parchment pouches can be made in various ways and using many shapes. you can use hearts, circles or squares and if you have no parchment, you can also use aluminum foil. The best thing to do is lay the fish down in the center of the parchment or aluminum foil, then the vegetables, then fold and crimp the edges up, leaving a gap to slip in the sauce, then pour in about 1/4 cup of the sauce per packet. However you do it, just make sure to fold AND crimp so that the steam (and sauce) stays inside the pouch to cook the food.
  3. Lay the pouches on a baking tray and place in the center rack of the oven for 15-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fish fillets). If you are unsure, just open one pouch to check doneness.
  4. To serve, place parchment pouches on plates and allow guests to open their own, or if you prefer, simply pour the contents into shallow bowls.
