Recipe by Dancer
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Cut twelve 12-inch squares of aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  • Set a square on the work surface so one corner points toward you.
  • Below the imaginary midline that divides the square into two triangles, place a slice of tomato and a small amount of shallot; top with a piece of fish, a portion of the olives and capers, some salt and pepper, and a pinch of thyme.
  • Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and a few drops of oil.
  • Fold the triangle top down over the fish.
  • Seal the packages by firmly folding over the edges three times and place the package in a large baking dish.
  • Repeat with the remaining squares and ingredients.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the pan in the oven after 10 minutes to ensure even cooking.
  • Carefully open one package; the fish should be opaque in the center.
  • If it is not, reseal the package and bake the fish about 5 minutes longer.
  • Serve 2 packages per person, allowing each diner to open his or her own at the table.
