Halibut En Papillote

I am sorry for the lack of updating this past week! Maybe it has actually been more than a week? However long it has been, it was way too long. Last week consisted of studying for finals and working my booty off at work to make some money (which I have none of after booking a trip to New York for my birthday at the end of the month). The good news is that I made a lot of money and pretty much owned my finals :) I’m not usually a huge studier, but I actually cracked down this week ;) Mom and dad would be proud.

Once finals were over, I immediately hit the road for Tennessee to see . I got here on Thursday and we have basically just been hanging out, running,

And cooking up a storm!

Last night, we bought some Halibut at Earthfare and made Halibut En Papillote. It is a simple French recipe that is absolutely delicious. It is pretty simple to make as well ;)

Halibut En Papillote


  • Olive oil
  • 12 sprigs fresh thyme, divided
  • 4 halibut fillets (approximately 6 ounces each)
  • 1 lemons
  • 8 tablespoons white wine
  • Fresh thyme
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Check the fillets for bones and remove any you find.
  3. Cut 1 lemons in half.
  4. Cut the lemon in very thin slices.
  5. Cut parchment paper in 8 10-inch circles.
  6. Brush one side of each circle of parchment with some of the olive oil.
  7. Place each fillet in the middle of 4 of the oiled circles of parchment.
  8. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of wine over each fillet.
  9. Layer the filets with fresh thyme, a thin slice of lemon, salt, and pepper.
  10. Fold the edges of the parchment paper together, sealing well.
  11. Place the parchment packets on the baking sheet.
  12. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
  13. Serve the fillets in their parchment paper.


On the side we had a roasted beet, fennel, and local goat cheese salad.


And grilled asparagus.


All together…
