Hello my good people! How are you today? Are you having the chillest, laziest, best weekend ever? No? I am! Today I even took a three hour nap. Three hours! I fell asleep with E!’s Oscar special on and I dreamt that I was working some gigantic jewelry diamond expo and I was assigned to handle Madonna, and she was such a bitch and made me run around looking for 1920′s jewelry. Yeah, it was weird.
Anyways, a few days ago I was inspired to cook something healthy and easy. At that point, I had been gorging on seriouslyawfulbutofcoursedelicious food for days and my body was begging for mercy. I went to the supermarket and went straight to fish counter and asked my oh-so-sweet counter dude, what’s the freshest today? He said COD! COD! COD! Okay fine, he didn’t say it like that.
So I got the cod, which by the way did look super sexy and fresh. As I was walking around the aisles, I saw a box of parchment paper. A-ha! I figured I was going to roast the fish (healthiest, most delicious thing ever) and upon seeing the parchment paper I immediately knew I was going to do it en-papillote style. I know, check me out with my fancy culinary lingo. I’m Joooooooooooolia Childs!
Cooking en-papillote is super easy. It’s mess free, fast, healthy, and babes, so dramatic. When you open that pouch on the table and you take a whiff of the aroma released right under your nose… aaaah. It’s sinful really. Anyways, when I got the cod and decided to cook it in this way, it was a bit of an experiment. I had never done it before, and I don’t even have a recipe for one. I figured it’d be easy enough, and that I would take pictures just in case it came out decent and blogable. So the fact that I am writing this, obviously means that it came out good and that I am a kitchen genius. Bow before me, you peasants!
Just kidding! It did came out good, but it could’ve been a lot better. I learned a few things along the way and I figured that you guys would enjoy this recipe. So let’s do this!
