On my designated French Friday cooking day it was 90 degrees and the same was expected the next day. Soup did not sound appealing. My husband’s concern about Cote d’Azur Cure-all Soup (page 70) was the eggs. Since I still have 3/4 of the cookbook to do I thought it would be easy to find a substitution.
I have liked Dorie’s other recipes en papillote and they have the added benefit of easy cooking and clean up. The salmon is laid upon a bed of basil and sprinkled with lemon zest, scallions, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and topped with lemon slices and additional basil. The foil packets are put into the oven and bake about 10-12 minutes. I took the extra step of sauteing my tomatoes before baking to intensify their flavor like Dorie suggested.
This was a quick and easy dinner for a hot night. I look forward to making this one again.
