This recipe is easily adapted to suit your tastes or whatever veg you have! Try it with any frozen fish too! Frozen veg works well in parcels- frozen peas, sweetcorn, broccoli etc! You’re basically steaming it along with the fish. If you want a stronger flavour try adding some paprika, chilli or capers in there!
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 small (or 1/2 a large) red onion
Handful of green beans
2-3 cloves of garlic
4 frozen cod fillets
Salt & pepper
Parsley (fresh is best but dried will work too!)
Juice of 1 lemon
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Thinly slice the peppers and onion, cut the beans into 2-3cm pieces, cut the tomatoes into 8 pieces, finely slice the garlic cloves
Lay a large piece of tin foil on the work surface and lay a cod fillets in the middle
Season the fish with a little salt & pepper and sprinkle around a teaspoon of parsley over it
Load up the peppers, onion, garlic, beans and tomatoes on top
Add a handful of frozen prawns and Squeeze a little lemon juice over the top
Finally drizzle over a touch of extra virgin olive oil
Fold the edges up and scrunch the ends to make a parcel. Make sure everything is contained and all the edges are sealed so nothing can leak out.
Pop onto a baking tray then repeat with the other fillets until you have 4 parcels!
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20mins
Unfold the parcel and spoon the contents onto a plate, pouring over some of the juice. Serve with rice, cous cous or potatoes! Simple!!
