I'm sure there might be a better way to refer to these, but as this is how I call them - bear with me :) "Fish parcels" are a super easy and quick way to cook fish (previously defrosted), alongside a healthy amount of veggies. You can cook them while you prepare other side-dishes (quinoa or brown rice anyone?), or while you make your overnight oats for the next day :) They are a perfect option for my clients on the Metabolic Balance plan.
Fish: Any fish you like! Salmon, hake, cod, turbot... you name it! Just ensure it has been properly defrosted to ensure it cooks through.
Veggies: Pick veggies that do not require long cooking times (like sweet potato!), such as spinach, carrots, zucchini and onions.
Oil: Either coconut, flaxseed or olive oil will work wonderfully, and you can match them to the type of fish. Salmon with coconut oil anyone?
Spices: As many as you like!
Start by prepping some aluminum foil and lay down your bed of green veggies (pics below).
Add your fish!
Top-up with the veggies of your choosing.
Drizzle with the selected oil and add spices.
Close up your "parcels".
Pop them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes (depending on the fish portion) at ~200 degrees (check fish packaging options, as this may vary from type to type).
Let the parcels cool down for a couple of minutes when you take them out and serve alongside some nice carbs, like brown rice or quinoa.
