Cod en papillote (BAKED FISH IN PARCHMENT)

February 2, 2017

This is one of my versions of doing this time saving and easy fish dish.  Tonight I decided to load up a large sheet of parchment paper with four (4) pieces of cod.  Another good thing about this dish is, it is easy to do and little to no clean up. Depending on how many servings you need and the size of your fish pieces, the serving amount will be subject to how much fish you will need to prepare this dish.  This can also be done with a variation of veggies and seasonings.  As you will see my dish for the evening calls for a very few number of veggies because I am also serving this with a tossed salad.


Here what I used to prepare this meal.


  • Fish (cod)
  • Mushroom
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Lemon juice
  • MSS
  • Parchment paper

You are going to need a large sheet of paper to line up your fish with enough space for folding and tucking.  Place the fish in one layer flat on the paper.  Cover the fish with mushrooms, then top that with the tomatoes and seasoning.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and seal. Seal the packet by making a series of folds while turning the packet and at the end tuck the remaining paper under the packet. Place in a preheated oven (350 degrees) and cook for 20 minutes.




As I mentioned earlier this is one of my versions. Tonight I did it on a large sheet of parchment and served it family style, because I was pressed for time.  This can be done as individual serving by cooking each piece of fish in its own little packet.  And it makes a great presentation.  Also you can use any fish or seafood as a substitute or combination.  Shrimps are great prepared this way and a mixture of seafood will also work.   I also use bell pepper, asparagus and slices of citrus fruit which I place on top of each packet before sealing.  If you are cooking individual packets the cooking time may vary.  Do not cut a slit into the packet before cooking because you want to keep the juices (broth) and favors stored inside.  You may also want to serve this with some crusty bread to dip into that wonderful broth.  Another good tip, you can use frozen fish and seafood to do this.  The sealed packet.  Allow a few additional minutes in the oven depending on how you like your fish and seafood.  When your meal is done the paper goes into the trash and the sheet used to cook is an easy swish before tossing in the dishwasher.
