I’m all about fast and easy cooking that I’m often inspired by quick fire challenges or “30 minute meals.” But since I live alone, I have to maximize my budget and a limited pantry selection. This makes me really creative in trying out dishes that saves me time, has few ingredients, but gives that “wow factor” when presented. And it makes cleaning up a whole lot better.

5 Ingredient Recipe: Honey & Soy Salmon En Papillote

5 Ingredient Recipe: Honey & Soy Salmon En Papillote


  • 2 fillets of salmon
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Optional: Vegetables are lovely healthy additions. I used French beans for this recipe since I have it in my fridge. Asparagus, julienned carrots, and bean sprouts works well too. I added in some slices of ginger to deepen the flavor and leave a nice aroma to the fish. You may also use scallions or garlic for this.


  1. 1 Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
  2. 2 Skin your fillets of salmon. Set aside.
  3. 3 In a bowl, make the marinade by mixing the soy sauce, chinese cooking wine, honey and sesame oil.
  4. 4 Place the salmon in the marinade mixture. (Add in your ginger, scallions or garlic if you have). Refrigerate and let it marinate for 15 minutes.
  5. 5 Tear a large length of baking paper. Set it on a baking tray. Place the marinated salmon (and vegetables if you have) on the baking paper. Fold the baking paper over the salmon. Fold the edges of the paper several times until it is well sealed.
  6. 6 Bake for 15-20 minutes depending of the size of your fish.
  7. 7 To serve, simply tear or unwrap the paper and season the fish with salt & pepper as you wish.
