Lemon-Infused Fish and Vegetables

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Epi Curious

Steaming fish with veggies in individual packages is not only healthy, it makes assembly and cleanup a breeze. You can use foil in place of the parchment paper. Orlando Sentinel, 2/2010. I like to add herbs to this; dill if cooking salmon, other fresh herbs if using a white fish. This is a very basic recipe you can customize to your individual tastes and it is very low in calories, fat, and sodium.

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Tear four lengths of parchment paper or foil, each about 18 inches long. Fold each length across in half; unfold. Divide lemon slices among parchment pieces, piecing them in a row; top with fish. Place vegetables beside the fish.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and salt; drizzle over the fish. Crimp or fold over the edges to form sealed packets. Place packets on two baking sheets.
  3. Bake until the packets are puffed and fish is cooked through, 12-15 minutes. transfer packets to serving plates. Cut the top of the packets open carefully (to avoid the escaping steam). Serve.
