How to make it

  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut out four 12”x13” sheets of parchment or tin foil.
  • 2. Season fish lightly with salt and pepper and place in center of paper. Top each fillet with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olives and capers. Dust with red pepper flakes and fresh oregano. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle lemon zest on top.
  • 3. Fold and seal each packet, tucking in folds to prevent steam from escaping. Lightly brush outside of packets with oil to prevent burning.
  • 4. Place on a large baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • 5. Carefully remove packets to individual serving plates and slit the top of each or let guests open their own. You can also serve this dish by gently sliding the contents from the parchment to plates.
  • Home-cooked meals are a great way to bring the family together at the end of the day, but can often result in a sink full of dirty dishes. Simplify your evening by making and "baking" your meal in one dish—and enjoy quick and easy cleanup afterward!

    I love parchment paper cooking for fish - fish turns out great and, like you said, virtually no clean-up! The ingredients here sounds like a really good combo. Will be trying soon...maybe tonight! Thanks.

    Wonderfully enticing recipe, both in preparation and tantalizing tastes :-)

    I love fish, and the combination of flavors seem fantastic -- I love Italian food for its simplicity and flavors.

    I have the sense that I will be saying thank you quite often for sharing your recipes :-)

    I'm off to add some of the ingredients to my shopping list!

    Take care,
