Baked Fish Fillets in a Bag!
by fariba Rajabi
I can call the Monday of last week a fish day! I bought some white fish fillet. The first thing came to me for cooking my fish was poaching it! I used thyme, oregano and spices to diffuse all the flavor into the fish and added as little as oil possible. Poaching is a great way of preparing fish and poultry because meat stays pretty moist with a little juice from vegetables that is so delicious and tasty.
This dish is not only delicious, but also makes zero mess in the kitchen during preparation and after serving. If you make this dish, you don’t have to wash plates! This makes this food a great pick if you are out of time or if you have friends coming over for a night gathering. What else you can ask for? You have a delicious meal ready in minutes, yet hours of fun and laughter!
300 gr fish fillet, cut into two pieces
1Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, washed
1small red onion, cut into wedges
1 large zucchini, sliced
2 tsp fresh or dry thyme
4 fresh garlic cloves, skinned
2Tbsp lime juice or red wine vinegar
2tsp spice mix: garlic powder, paprika, crushed black pepper, dill seed, and coriander powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 pieces of parchment paper, cut into 40 by 40 cm
Warm up the oven to 450 F.
Combine spice mix with olive oil in a small bowl and rub the fillets into the spice on both sides.
Fold the paper in half crosswise. Open the papers and place the fish fillets beside the fold-line. Arrange zucchini, cherry tomatoes, herbs,and garlic at the top of the fish. Drizzle lime juice over the mix. Fold each paper and crimp the edges to seal each pocket.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve hot with warm bread.
Note: if parchment paper is not available, you can use aluminum foils instead.
