A few awesome things about fish: healthy, can be flavorful, and it doesn’t take long to cook. So in case you’re getting hangry (that’s when you feel a little angry because you’re hungry) this is a super quick and delicious meal you can throw together.Have you ever baked fish in parchmet paper before? It actually steams the fish because all the moisture gets trapped inside the paper packet. You can add other veggies and they too will get lightly steamed.Cut out a large square of parchment paper. Add in a few veggies, like asparagus with a couple of lemon slices.Now add the fish, be sure to season it with salt and pepper. I mashed together 2 tablespoons of butter with 2 chopped cloves of garlic and a little fresh dill. It looks like a large amount of butter, I know. But it’s got a lot of garlic in there so it’s kind of deceiving. Fold the packet together and fold up the sides so that the contents will steam as they bake.Bake at 400°F for 8-12 minutes. The packet will slightly puff as it cooks. When you remove it from the oven take care when you cut through the packet as hot steam will come out. Don’t get burned!Enjoy this quick and delicious dinner! xo. Emma

I made it with Brussels sprouts instead of asparagus, and a side of roasted potatoes…the whole family loved it =)

Wanted to add some fish to our meal plan this week but have never cooked it before (I know I know! So bad!) so I’ll definitely give this recipe a try
I use foil all the time for this. Make a nice little foil igloo and it steams up lovely on the inside
GIVE ME IT!!!!)))) hahah
looks so delicious!!!
Asparagus is the perfect compliment to sea food, and with some lemon slices… yum!
This sounds amazing! I need to start including more fish in my diet, so I might give this a try next week when my partner is back from his work trip!
i have never tried cooking fish this way, but it seems both simple and elegant!
I’d never heard of this steaming method before. There are so many possibilities for it. Thanks for the great recipe!
This looks delicious. Asparagus is one of my favourite foods!
are Those butter Garlic Directions For One Piece Of Fish Or Two? Also, Is There Some ReD Seasoning On The Fish or Just Salt And Pepper?
Thanks For Sharing!
What kind of fish did you use in these photos? Looks yummy whatever it is. I’ve tried talapia and swai and they were just ‘ok’ to me but maybe I’ll have to try again using this method. Thanks for sharing this!
I love “hangry” :). This looks yummy and easy, my kind of recipe.
Mm that looks delicious!

Lovely recipe. I adore simple dishes like these. Though what type of fish did you use in this recipe?
It is way too hot in my apartment to consider cooking in any form right now, but I will keep this in mind once (if?) it starts to cool down in LA.
This looks absolutely amazing! i’m hungry hehe
Looks amazing! I have to give this a try!
