So if you missed it, make sure you check out The Pescetarian and the Pig Episode 2: How to Bake Fish in Parchment. It is a step-by-step tutorial on this exact dish (and I’d like to think it’s entertaining to watch, as well).

And this recipe? Ooohhhhhh this recipe…

Parchment Baked Halibut

It is so simple, so easy to make, but so enormously packed with flavor that it’s hard to believe that it is so healthy and flavored only with fresh herbs, spices, and a couple of vegetables. Oh yes, and lemon :)

Parchment Baked Halibut

It tastes as fresh as a summer’s day! Baking fish in parchment is actually quite a fun activity. It’s like gift-wrapping a fun little parcel that you stick in the oven, pull out a mere 15 minutes later, and like a kid on Christmas you squeal in delight about the awesome aromas wafting through the air and the beautiful sight of your creation.

I always think this dish is such a great idea for an at home date or a dinner party because you can teach your guest(s) how to make it, customize it to their liking, it brings everyone into the kitchen with you, and best of all: People really love to eat their own concoctions, especially when it tastes so great. Proud moments :)

Parchment Baked Halibut

  • 2- 6oz. Halibut Filets
  • 2 Lemons, Sliced
  • 6 Fresh Sage Leaves
  • 6 Fresh Sprigs of Thyme
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Sliced
  • 2 Large Shallots, Sliced
  • 6 Grape Tomatoes, Sliced in half
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to Taste

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lay down two large squares of parchment paper (about 18″x18″). Lay half of the lemon slices on each piece of paper in a rectangular shape. Lay 3 pieces of sage across each lemon stack.

Place fish filet on top of the lemons. Grind salt and pepper on top. Add thyme, shallots, onions, and tomato slices on top.

Fold the parchment paper by taking to opposite sides and meeting in the middle, then fold down and crease. Roll each end up and tuck underneath (watch Episode 2: How to Bake Fish in Parchment for a full video tutorial, including some pleasing eye-candy and the adorable tricks of Cupcake the mini potbelly pig :) )

Place each parchment parcel on a baking sheet or in a cake tin and place in the oven for 15 minutes. You can serve this wrapped in parchment, or remove from parchment and place on a dish.

      It is very simple, and it makes a lovely presentation. When you open up that little parchment package, the lemon and herb steam will make you swoon :)
