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 or foil for each person to open. —Jill Anderson, Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups julienned carrots
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh snow peas
  • 2 green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 cod fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 teaspoons butter

Directions

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.
Fold parchment paper over fish. Bring edges of paper together on all sides and crimp to seal, forming packets. Place on baking sheets.
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.

"I made this for supper last night and was pleasantly surprised. I usually prefer my fish grilled or fried so I wasn't expecting much from steamed fish but it had a light lemon flavor and perfect texture. Clean up was virtually non-existent, a plus for those nights I have to work. I will make this again."
