1. Barramundi en Papillote: These pouches house moist, flavorful, flaky fish and a slew of both hot and sweet peppers inside. Serve with tortillas or over a pile of your fave fluffy grain (or even riced cauliflower) for an even more complete meal. (via Jelly Toast)
8. Foil Packet “Soy”-Lime Salmon with Green Beans: Simple, savory flavors are the star here — the crisp-tender green beans and perfectly cooked salmon make for one spectacular combo. (via Confections of a Foodie Bride)
11. Tommy’s Pompano en Papillote: Get a taste of the Big Easy with this rich chowder loaded with a variety of seafood; you’ll find morsels of shrimp, oysters, crab and pompano swimming in the creamy, herbed broth. (via Saveur)
13. Salmon and Asparagus in Foil: When asparagus is in season, we can hardly get enough of the verdant veggie. Our mouths are already watering at the thought of the stalks partnered up with salmon and citrus in these packets. (via MJ and Hungryman)
