So easy and so delicious. Adapted from theviewfromgreatisland.com
- Mild white fish filet of choice - trout, sole, cod, walleye (pictured)
- Orange - sliced thin with the peel
- Olive oil (I used orange infused. Plain or herb-infused also would be delicious)
- Thyme - fresh or dried
- salt and pepper
- Other herbs or julienned vegetables as desired (I once used a small handful of pre-packed broccoli and carrot slaw mix and it was delicious)
Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C).
I prepare one filet per person. If they are very small, you may have 2 per person or if very large, it may serve more than one.
Cut a sheet of parchment large enough to fold over the filet. Lay orange slices in a row the length of the filet. Place the filet on top, drizzle lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle dried thyme or place fresh sprigs on top.
To wrap the fish, bring up the long sides together, and fold over twice, as if closing a paper bag, creasing well after each fold. Then fold each end twice, the same way, only folding it under, so the packet stays neatly wrapped while it bakes. No worries - I had no idea what I was doing, and it all worked out great!
Lay the packets on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes. The fish will be steamed perfectly. If you are using thick pieces of fish you may want to check that it is done to your liking.
