Cod en Papillote from the fin@home kitchen



2 teaspoons olive oil

2 fillets of cod, 6 - 8 ounces each

½ cup Champagne or white wine

1 tsp fennel seeds

4 sprigs fresh thyme

4 sprigs parsley

4 thin lemon slices

Salt and pepper to taste

Yield: 2 Servings RECIPE Fold 2 large pieces of parchment (or aluminum foil) in half – note the halfway mark on each folded rectangle. Your fillet and ingredients will be placed just above that halfway mark. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place oil on parchment, just above the fold line then, put cod (or other white fish, such as halibut, haddock, grouper, hake, turbot, Pollock, tilapia) in the center and drizzle with Champagne/white wine. Add 2 sprigs of thyme, 2 lemon slices, 2 parsley sprigs and ½ tsp fennel seeds on each piece of fish. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Begin folding the parchment/aluminum foil in one corner, folding one fold into the next and into the next, until you have worked your way around the paper to the opposite corner. Twist/fold the last corner to seal your meal inside. Leave some room in your packet for it to puff up in the oven, don’t wrap it tightly. Now, it will steam with all those flavors inside! Place your folded packets onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes in preheated oven. If you are using parchment, it will begin to darken. That’s perfect! Serve by setting each packet on a plate. Let your guests open the packet (like a bag of potato chips) and spoon juices over the fish. Voilà — drama as well as flavor. Once the packets are open, your guests can add side dishes to their plate such as rice, green beans, and salad.
