Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
2 salmon fillets or other fish fillets
1 sliced lemon
8 tablespoons natural yoghurt Greek style
1 small bunch flat leaf parsley
1 bag salad leaves

Variations

different fish – salmon is great but pretty much any fish fillets can be cooked this way. For thinner fillets best to check after 7-8 minutes to make sure they don’t overcook. Whole fish can also be baked in parcels like this, with a longer cooking time.

vegetarian – veggie parcels can be a lovely surprise. My favourite are chunky mushrooms. Add a little olive oil or butter for extra richness. Will take about 30 minutes. You could also serve the herby yoghurt with roast eggplant.

dairy-free – replace the yoghurt with equal parts of tahini, lemon juice and water OR smashed avocado.

vegan – combine the vegetarian and dairy-free alternatives.

carnivore – the best meat for baking like this is chicken breasts or thigh fillets. Expect them to take 15-20 minutes.

more substantial / carb-lovers – serve with cooked quinoa, lentils, steamed rice, cooked couscous or just crusty bread and butter. If you have time, roast potatoes are always lovely with fish.

extra flavourings – lemon is lovely in your parcels but you might also like to try any of the following: thyme, chilli (fresh or dried), lime, sumac, coriander seeds, or a pinch of saffron.

If you’re not very confident with cooking fish (or even if you are) baking fish in a bag is a brilliant technique to have in your arsenal. I love it for two reasons. First there’s no fishy smell taking over the whole house that can happen when pan frying fish. Second you almost don’t have to think. Just pop it in the oven, set the timer and you’re free to do something else while dinner cooks itself. Too easy.
