Here is a recipe for Halibut en Papillote with Artichoke and Citrus Beurre Blanc

Yields 4 servings

Compound Butter:

  • 4 Tbsp Butter, room temperature
  • 1 bunch Basil, picked, chopped
  • 1 bunch Parsley, picked, chopped
  • 1 each Lemon, zest only
  • 1 each Shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp Salt

Equipment Needed:

  • Small Bowl
  • Spoon


  1. Mix all ingredients together. Reserve

En Papillote:

  • 10 oz Halibut Fillet
  • ¼ tsp Ground White Pepper
  • ½ tsp Espelette Pepper
  • ½ Tbsp Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Tempered Compound Butter(recipe above)
  • ½ # Young Potatoes
  • 1 Leek, cut into ½” coins and gently rinsed
  • 2 Bunch Breakfast Radish, rinsed, leaves removed, cut in half
  • 1 Large Artichoke
  • 2 oz Dry White Wine

Equipment Needed:

  • 1 Sheet Parchment Paper (approx. 16x24”)
  • Small Pot
  • Sheet or Cookie Tray
  • Slotted Spoon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half and add to the small pot. Cover with cold water and add 1 Tbsp salt. Place the pot on the stove and turn the heat on high and bring to a boil and cook until tender. Check the potatoes with a fork by poking them gently. If the potatoes give a lot of resistance and feel firm, cook them for 2 more minutes. If they give way slightly they are done and turn off the heat.
  3. Clean the artichoke: Using a serrated knife cut ¼ inch off around the base of the artichoke, exposing the heart. Trim the top of the leaves to expose the top of the heart and the “choke”. Use a spoon to scoop out the choke so that no thin hairs remain. Using your knife trim away the remaining leaves and outside of the artichoke so that nothing remains except white flesh of the heart. Cut the heart in quarters. Store in water until it’s time to arrange on the parchment paper.
  4. Season the halibut all around with the white pepper, espelette, and salt.
  5. Spread the compound butter over the top of the fish.
  6. Place the parchment paper on your work surface. Fold the parchment paper in half so that the short sides meet. Open it back up, there should be a line down the center of the paper.
  7. Arrange the artichoke, radishes, and leeks to one side of the parchment paper.
  8. Strain the potatoes and place them on top of the other vegetables.
  9. Place the prepared fish on top of the vegetables, keeping everything on one half of the paper.
  10. Lastly, pour the 2 Tbsp wine over the ingredients.
  11. Taking the two short sides of the paper, fold them back over the fish and vegetables. Starting on one end make a small fold to crimp the edge where the ends meet. Continue to crimp along the edge overlapping your previous fold slightly to ensure it is sealed. After the final fold, tuck the end under the crease to hold the seam together.
  12. Place the papillote on your baking tray and set aside.

  1. In a mixing bowl add the sliced shallot, thyme, bay leaf, white wine, and vinegar.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce until ¼ cup of liquid remains.
  3. Strain the reduction and return it to the pot. Bring the liquid back to a boil and remove from heat. Start to add a few pieces of butter in increments, whisking continuously as the butter melts and incorporates into the sauce. Add more butter when the previous addition has melted.
  4. When all the butter has been used, season the sauce with a pinch of salt. Keep the sauce somewhere warm.
  5. Take the reserved lemon and trim to the outside rind so that all that remains is the center of the fruit and no white pith. Cut along the white outside of each segment, cutting out each cell so that it drops into a boil.
  6. After you have cut out each cell, add the contents of the bowl to the sauce.
  7. Stir and taste the sauce. Adjust the seasoning with salt as needed.
  8. Keep the saucepan somewhere warm but not overheat.
