This traditional cooking technique imparts flavor into every bite of your meal, and it requires very little clean-up. I like to serve fish still wrapped in parchment for each person to open.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine carrots, snow peas and green onions. Cut parchment paper or heavy-duty foil into four 18x12-in. pieces; place a fish fillet off center on each. Drizzle with lemon juice and top with carrot mixture. Sprinkle with seasonings; dot with butter.
  2. Fold parchment paper over fish. Bring edges of paper together on all sides and crimp to seal, forming a packet. Repeat for remaining packets. Place on baking sheets.
  3. Bake 10-15 minutes or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.
