Lemon Herb Fish in parchment paper is an incredibly healthy recipe that is also stunningly beautiful. Prep it ahead of time and you'll have an easy weeknight 30 minute meal, or a company-worthy dish.
Course: Main Course
2fish fillets, I used tilapia
2lemons, washed and very thinly sliced
fresh herbs, I used sage and thyme
salt and fresh cracked pepper
a drizzle of good olive oil
2Tbspbutter for dotting, optional but good!
Set oven to 400F
Fan out the sliced lemons on two sheets of parchment paper to form a bed for the fish.
Lay the fish on the lemons, and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the fresh herbs on top of the fish, and then give it a light drizzle of olive oil. Dot with butter, if using.
Wrap the fish in the paper. Bring the two long sides up and fold like a lunch bag. Fold the two end as well, tucking them under the fish so the packet stays secure. Make a small slit in the paper to allow steam to escape.
Bake for 20 minutes. Serve the fish hot, still in the packets.
