Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2
Cut two 18 inch long by 15 inch wide pieces of parchment paper. Fold the long side in half and cut into a heart-shape. The parchment paper should be large enough to contain one portion of fish and vegetables folded in half. Brush one inch edge of each piece of parchment paper with egg white.
Step 3
Toss the sliced onions and shredded carrots together in a small bowl. Evenly portion the asparagus spears on half of each piece of oiled parchment paper. Place the onion and carrot mixture on top of the asparagus.
Step 4
Place one portion of barramundi atop each portion of vegetables, and season generously with salt and pepper.
Step 5
Top each portion of fish with sliced garlic, and 1 teaspoon sliced green onions, 1 tablespoon of butter, and ½ oz Vermouth. Fold the other half of the parchment paper over the fish and vegetables. Starting at one corner, tightly crimp the edges of the paper to seal it.
Step 6
Place the pouches (papillote) on a sheet pan and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. When baked, the parchment paper should puff up and brown slightly. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Step 7
Transfer the envelope to a plate; then cut envelope open to release the aroma. Be careful, as hot steam may escape.
Step 8
Garnish with a lemon wedge and a side of steamed new potatoes or rice.
