This Andy Waters recipe uses the classic en papillote cooking technique to retain the flavour of the salmon and ensures that the mild and rich textures of the seafood linger to the delight of the diner. The plethora of seafood in the recipe is great for fish lovers.
Andy Waters helped put the Midlands on the gastronomic map when he won a Michelin star in 2003 for Edmunds. The award came within six months of opening and the restaurant went on to be named restaurant of the year by Harden's Guide.
