Fish en Papillote
4 – 6oz fish fillets
4 Tbsp capers
1 cup olives, mixed and pitted
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
4 garlic cloves
4 lemon slices
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
10-12 fresh thyme springs (or other herbs)
1/2 cup white wine (or use vegetable broth)
Salt and pepper to taste
Parchment bags, 1 per serving

SNP Tip: Make meal time interactive. Kids’ curious minds will have fun opening a mystery bag on their plate

Heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Season fish with salt and pepper, place one fillet into a bag with a slice of lemon and herbs.

Saute capers, olives, tomatoes, garlic in olive oil and deglaze with wine (or broth). Evenly distribute into bags, and place on oven-safe dish. Bake at 400 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Serve with whatever floats your boat ; )

Note, Chef Ryan Nelson from Late Harvest Kitchen originally designed the recipe to serve two, but I increased the portions to four. And once you make it, you’ll love the ease of cooking with parchment bags so next time, don’t be afraid to take out things you don’t like and add more of what you do.
