weeknight dinner :: steamed fish parcels

a quick week night dinner using veggies from my weekend market bag

steamed snapper parcel

start with your choice of fish (I’ve used Australian wild snapper), a lemon, fresh herbs (I’ve used parsley,  coriander & fresh turmeric), olive oil, salt & pepper

lemon & herb bed

place a bed of sliced lemon and herbs on a sheet of foil, lay fish fillet on top, scatter salt, pepper and grated turmeric and drizzle olive oil.

fresh tumeric; peel & grate

fold foil into a pretty parcel and cook in a preheated oven (180 degrees Celsius) for 15-20 minutes.

serve with your choice of veggies or salad. i served tonight’s dinner with a selection of veggies sautéed in sesame oil (green beans, mushrooms, asparagus, red onion, radicchio & topped with orange segments)

Bon appetite!
