- 4 6-8 oz cod fillets
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 2-3 tbsp butter
- 2-3 cloves garlic zested
- 4 slices fresh lemon
- 1/2 medium red bell pepper thinly julienned
- 1/2 medium orange bell pepper thinly julienned
- 1/2 medium carrot thinly julienned
- 12 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
- 2 green onions chopped
- 4 tsp chopped fresh dill
- 4 tsp chopped fresh parsley
- 4 tsp dry sherry
Cut the lemon, carrot, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Then chop the green onion, dill, and parsley.
Cut 4 (15 x 15) inch pieces of parchment paper and fold each in half just to make a crease. Then place thin slice of butter on the bottom half.
Place the cod fillet on top of the butter and season it with salt and pepper. Then spread about 1/4 tsp zested garlic on the fish.
Add 1 slice of lemon on top and begin adding a thin layer of bell peppers, carrots, cherry tomato halves, green onion, dill, and parsley.
Add another thin slice of butter and 1 tbsp of dry cherry on top each cod fillet.
Fold the parchment paper back over and begin making small folds along the edge so that you end up with a half circle.
Once all of the fillets are tightly folded into the parchment paper, place them onto a baking sheet and bake in a 390 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the fillet.
