Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 4-ounce halibut fillets (about 1 inch thick) - or other fish you like, such as salmon or char or cod
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup scallions sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper small dice
  • 1/4 cup zucchini/yellow squash small dice
  • 1/4 cup snow peas sliced thin

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir until blended.
  3. Cut 2 (15 x 24-inch) pieces of parchment paper. Fold in half crosswise. Draw a large heart half on each piece, with the fold of the paper along the center of the heart. Cut out the heart, and open. Sprinkle both sides of fillets with salt and pepper. Place one fillet near fold of each parchment heart. Top each fillet with half the vegetables and half the oil mixture. Start at the top of the heart and fold edges of parchment, sealing edges with narrow folds. Twist the end tip to secure tightly.
  4. Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for ~15 minutes. Place on plates; cut open. Serve immediately.

      Cooking time will be based on the size of the fish — so if you have a 2-inch thick piece, then the time will be the same. Smaller would be a little less and bigger would be a bit more. If you stick around 15 minutes and check it, you should be fine.
