We first discoverd fish in parchment over a year ago as a quick and easy dinner option. Since then, it has become my favorite way to prepare fish.
It is so simple and nutritious, yet the results are quite exquisite. Flaky, tender fish steams and cooks just right with whatever flavors you choose to use. The spices, citrus, and herbs you place in the parchment perfume the fish with flavor and yields truly glorious results without any of the hassle one would associate with cooking the perfect fish. Below I have shared my latest favorite flavor combinations, but feel free to come up with your own.

Step 1 Cut round circles of parchment. Place fish and spices/toppings on one half of the circle.
