Fish in Parchment Packet

Updated on January 31, 2013
5 stars from 2 ratings of Fish in Parchment Packet

Impress dinner guests by presenting them with their very own fish and vegetables pouches. Steaming fish in parchment paper is a healthy and delicious way of cooking your fish. It’s a no fuss cooking with unlimited possibilities. I used the vegetables I had on hand but you can use broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower or any vegetable you have in your refrigerator. You can be creative with these packets by using different herbs and seasonings for added flavors. The best part of this dish is there is no cleanup afterward yay.

      It's super easy and there won't be any mess to clean up afterward.

      I might try this. Back a few decades ago, I read some Edgar Cayce books, and he recommended cooking with parchment paper.

      Thanks for trying this recipe Christin53 and for sharing and voting up. I appreciate it :). That's what I like about this recipe that you can use any kind of vegetables you like and add more flavors by using herbs and spices.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading my recipe :) I made this recipe very simple but you can add any spice, herb or vegetable you like. The steam in the packet cooks everything together creating a tasy and easy meal. If you don't have parchment paper you can use foil. Let me know about the creations you come up with.
