En Papillote… Ooh Fancy!

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. The beauty of cooking like this is that it seals in the moisture and there’s added bit of theatre when you open the parcel on the plate and the steam escapes. Enjoy!

Chilli and Mushroom Fish Parcels
Prep and cook: 30 mins, serves 4

2 lemons
600 grams rockling fillets
100 grams button mushrooms
4 green spring onions
1 long red chillies
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sesame (or olive) oil
1.5 cups long grain rice
100 grams snow peas
2 tsp sesame seeds
4 large sheets of baking paper

First a little prep…

  • thinly slice lemons
  • cut extra lemon into wedges
  • slice button mushrooms
  • thinly slice spring onion diagonally
  • thinly slice long red chilled diagonally
  • wash and trim snow peas

Now let’s cook!

  1. Divide the lemon slices down the centre of baking paper. Top with fish and mushrooms. Sprinkle with onions and chilli.
  2. Combine sauce and oil in a small jug. Drizzle evenly over fish. Bring sides of baking paper up to meet in the centre. 3. Fold over a few times to seal. Foil in ends and tuck under parcels. Place on large oven tray.
  3. Cook in a moderately hot oven (190C) for about 18 to 20 minutes
  4. Use ratio of 1.5 cups water to 1 cup rice. Add both to a saucepan and bring to the boil, cover with a tight fitting lid, turn heat to low and cook for 14 minutes. Then stand covered for 5 minutes, fluff up with a fork.
  5. Put snow peas on top of the rice (without mixing) for final 2 minutes of cooking. Remove before fluffing the rice.
  6. Serve fish over rice with snow peas and extra lemon, cut into wedges. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Enjoy!

Been getting Pepper Leaf for 10 months now for our family of 4. We cannot fault it! Far superior to Marley Spoon in terms of: 1. quality of fresh produce and meat; 2. size portions of carb/protein/vege; 3. interesting recipes which are still appealing to children; 4. easy to follow cooking instructions for non-cooks; 5. personal customer service; 6. packaging that is mindful of the environment; and 7. value for money. Both husb and I work full-time in demanding roles and having fridge/freezer stocked with the meals for the week early on Sat helps stay sane. Please keep up the good work - we LOVE Pepper Leaf! PS. Our 14 year old daughter cooks the evening meal on a Wed, due to Pepper Leaf!

I love the variety of the meals and it certainly takes away the struggle of what to cook after a long day at work. With fresh ingredients supplied I know I'm eating healthy too. I've tried others but find Pepper Leaf better by far, both in the meals offered and excellent customer service.

I’ve been getting pepper leaf now for about 3-4 weeks. I was trialling two companies and pepper leaf beat the other company hands down! Their customer service is the amazing and they’re always happy to help with anything I need! My partner and I work until 5 so it makes it much easier coming home and having all the fresh ingredients and recipes ready to go!

Love our Pepperleaf. Takes the pressure off thinking about what to cook but still getting the enjoyment of cooking. Added benefit of cutting our supermarket shopping and food wastage down dramatically.

Outstanding quality and great choices available at Pepperleaf. Agree with others that customer service is outstanding - emailed once and received a reply within 1 minute that I could tell wasn’t automated (this was at 9pm!!) if it stays this way we will be very happy long term customers. Also have tried other meal deliveries but they don’t compare.

We are loving Pepperleaf after using Hello Fresh and getting so frustrated with the quality, particularly the mince and meat plus the meal repetition. Pepperleaf ingredients are much better quality and we are really enjoying all their meals.

We've been getting Pepperleaf for a few months now. I had looked at some of the other meal kit companies but they did not suit as some of my family members are picky eaters. We get two meals a week and it is so much easier not having to think of what to eat every night. Love the Pepperleaf recipes and love the added extras we receive every now and then. We got some beautiful plums and peaches this time. Keep up the great work!

I would be lost without Pepper Leaf!! I have tried a couple of others before Pepper Leaf and they just don't compare! It is always a drama trying to figure out what to cook, with Pepper Leaf they do the thinking for me and everything that we eat is healthy and tasty! Pepper Leaf is easy and the recipes are great!! Would recommend to EVERYONE!

My favourite time of the whole week is when I open my Pepper Leaf box on a Saturday morning! I spend about half an hour sorting the ingredients into large or jumbo ziplock bags, one for each meal, with a colourful postit label inside the bag, put them in the fridge, and my shopping and meal planning are done for the whole week! I love that the foods all come trimmed for immediate use and there is NO wastage, and also that the veggies and meat are exceptionally fresh. I had not ever learned cookery, and the recipe cards' simple techniques have taught me many new and easy, tasty ways with food. The servings are ample and the balance of veggies and salad to meat is a healthy one. I'm impressed with the effort to have all packaging recyclable. Any tiny little glitches are always sorted graciously and as best as practicable. Twenty-six deliveries in, I'm a very happy customer.:D

We've been doing pepper leaf for about 6 months now. While sometimes there are typos or confusing instructions, Ive only had to email once when I couldn't work it out, and I got a response fairly promptly. I highly recommend p-leaf if you've got a busy life, or just want to try new recipe ideas. It's been fabulous for trying different flavour combos, having less food wastage, and adding new recipes to my collection. 10/10 do recommend!

We love our Pepper Leaf box every week. The simple healthy recipes with pre-portioned ingredients makes mid week cooking such a breeze (never realised how much time and brain power was absorbed in meal planning and shopping until Pepper Leaf started doing it for us!). But what truly sold us on Pepper Leaf is the quality of ingredients. They are so fresh and every meal is delicious as a result. This balanced against the time and energy saved makes Pepper Leaf great value for money.

Pepperleaf has never disappointed. The freshest ingredients and a variety of recipes ensures that my family is loving meal time. I do not miss the wasted time at supermarkets and love the extra time with my family.

Having tried all the other recipe/ingredients boxes in market I can tell you Pepper Leaf delivers the highest quality produce, the meat and fish are always next level and we love the recipes. I appreciate that they source their produce locally and that they're an Australian company. The prices are also really reasonable - I could never make that many meals for the price doing it myself at the supermarket. Awesome work Pepper Leaf �

Great quality food. We were recommended from some food snob friends who use Pepper Leaf and after 3 weeks, we are very happy.
