How to fold a papillote

Making a papillote may look complicated, but it takes only a little practice to turn a simple piece of parchment paper into a flavor- and moisture-trapping envelope.

Start with a sheet of parchment paper about twenty inches long. Fold it in half, then open it back up. Put the filling in the center of the fold.
Next, fold the paper over so the two ends meet, enclosing the food. Beginning at either end of the center crease, make small, overlapping diagonal folds around the filling, sealing the papillote tight.
You'll end up with a half-crescent shape that looks sort of like a fried pie. Now just put the papillote on a roasting pan and slide it into the oven.
