Fish en Papillote
47 min - Prep 20 min, Inactive 15 min, Cook 12 min

Yield: 4 servings


½- 1015 or other sweet onion, julienned
1 zucchini, julienned
1 large carrot, julienned
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (4-ounce) fillets, preferably white fish
1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeds removed
8 sprigs fresh thyme
4 pats butter
1/4 cup white wine


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a bowl, mix together the onion, zucchini, carrot and garlic. Adds the oil, season with salt and pepper, to taste, and toss to combine. Put each fish fillet in a large square of parchment paper and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the vegetables on top, dividing evenly. Top the vegetables with 2 lemon slices, 2 sprigs thyme, a pat of butter and 1 tablespoon white wine, layering in order. Fold the parchment paper around the edges tightly in 1/4-inch folds to create a half moon shape. Make sure you press as you crimp and fold to seal the packets well, otherwise the steam will escape. Arrange the packets on a baking sheet. Bake until the fish is cooked through, about 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. To serve, cut open the packets and serve directly in the parchment on a plate or remove the fish to the plate using a spatula, being sure you don't leave the juices behind.
I also cook fish court bullion, stew, soup, baked, grilled, smoked and sauted.

Hey Trades,
I haven't seen parchment paper used like this before. Are you rapping the fish and other ingredient into an enclosed parcel using the parchment paper? I've always seen aluminium foil used for this function. Does it make a difference? Are the two interchangeable or is there a specific reason for using parchment paper?

Thanks for the recipe looks delicious.

Regards, Martin.

In Oz we'd substitute oven bag for banana leaf

but I miss the days when you got fish and chips wrapped in Newspaper.
