Parchment Paper Fun

Posted on: November 21, 2008

I call this treating yourself. This is a dish that doesn’t take a lot of time, but it tastes and looks like it does. Pair it with a glass of wine, light a little candle and enjoy. It all starts with the glory of using parchment paper in your cooking. Not only is it a healthy way to cook, but it adds lots of flavor.

You make pouches out of parchment paper like so:

Tear off sections about a foot long

Fold the top and bottom of the paper together, crease several times and then crease the ends together

My favorite dish so far is Cod or Talapia in a sack. Don’t be afraid of fish! Unless you just don’t like it. really, it is easier to work with than you think.

So I take a either Cod or Talapia, depending on how many your cooking for, you want anywhere from 2- 4 portions or filets.

1/2 cup kalamata olives

2-4 garlic cloves minced

1/2 yellow onion sliced

1 cup of fresh spinach

crushed red pepper flakes

fresh lemon juice

roasted red peppers chopped

feta cheese (optional)

olive oil

Start building a stack of deliciousness to place your filet on:

Place a little of the garlic, kalamata olives, onion, roasted red pepper, and spinach on each parchment paper

Put fish on top of the various ingredients, then sprinkle with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top.

Fold up the paper as mentioned above, to create a sack. Place on cookie sheet and bake in oven at 400 F for about 20 minutes.

Finish by topping with feta cheese if desires. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM! Especially with a glass of white wine.

Here’s some other parchment paper recipes!
