Good Friday Fish Feast!
Fish en Papillote (Fish in a Bag)
Whether you celebrate Good Friday or not, there is nothing nicer than starting the Easter long weekend with a good fish meal! I love cooking ‘En papillote’ (french for “in parchment”). This healthy method of cooking is simply placing food into a folded pouch and then baking.
The parcel holds in moisture to steam the food so prevents it from drying out. I use this type of cooking method when entertaining however, ‘en papillote’ sounds more impressive than ‘in a bag!’
- 4 x 180 g fish fillet (blue eye, salmon, ocean trout, barramundi, snapper)
- 4 teaspoons cold pressed olive oil
- Pinch sea salt
- 2 lemons, sliced
- Thyme sprigs
- 4 x pieces baking paper cut into a large square
1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 C.
2. Lay the two pieces of baking paper onto a working bench. Place a fish fillet into the middle of each piece of baking paper.
3. Spoon over 1 teaspoon olive oil onto each piece of fish. Season the fish with sea salt.
4. Add a slice of lemon over the fish. Next, layer over a little thyme.
5. Enclose the fish with the baking paper by firstly folding both ends into the middle.
6. Seal the ends, twisting the paper like a christmas cracker.
7. Place onto a baking tray and bake for 12 minutes until cooked through – but this depends on the thickness of the fish.
8. Remove and place onto a serving plate.
9. Serve with a large green salad and roasted sweet potato wedges.
