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 1, recipe 2, recipe 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.
