Citrus Cod with Vegetables and Herbs En Paupiette

A bright colorful and healthy dinner in 25 minutes from prep to eating.  You simply wrap wild caught white fish with any veggies of your choice with the below herbs and seasonings in parchment paper and bake.  We adore the simplicity of this and the ease of clean-up with no additional pots and pans!

It makes for a beautiful presentation for a dinner party or a quick and healthy family meal. It can also be made in individual servings, for a delicious lunch for yourself!

Servings: 3-4

1lb any wild caught white fish (cod, bass, halibut)

*Any veggies of your choice work!

1 cup kale, chopped

1 cup spinach, chopped

1 zucchini, julienned or sliced into ¼ inch rounds

1 tomato, sliced into rounds

½ red onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup basil, dill or any herb of your choosing, chopped

1/4 cup capers

2 lemons, 1 lemon sliced into rounds and 1 squeezed onto fish

1/2 grapefruit or orange, squeezed onto fish and sliced

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Himalyian sea salt and pepper to your liking

Additional seasoning: pinch of cayanne pepper or Za’atar is delicious

Large piece of parchment paper or smaller pieces if you are making individual portions


Preheat oven to 375. Take a large sheet of parchment paper place it on a baking sheet and fold it in half. Repeat for each serving or you can make one large portion. Drizzle olive oil onto one half of the sheet and layer veggies, onions and garlic on top, near the crease.

Place fish on top of the veggies. Add fresh lemon and citrus juices, herbs, capers and season with salt and pepper and your seasoning of choice. Drizzle with olive oil over fish and veggies. Top fish with rounds of lemon and citrus slices.

Fold the paper over each piece of fish, forming a tent over the fish and roll the edges over to seal. Bake for 12-15 mins until the fish is firm to the touch. Careful opening it!

With love and gratitude,

Christine & Stephanie
