Salmon en Papillote… My Way

On my recent trip back to Jakarta, I noticed how western food have become more and more popular. You can find anything in Jakarta’s food scene, from american style diner food to french bistro. I happened to pop into one restaurant that serves a French-inspired everything en papillote, cooked in paper. With that inspirations in mind, here’s my take on cooking en papillote…
