  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Line a roasting pan with foil or parchment paper, making sure there’s enough material for folding and sealing the top of it.
  3. Cut the fish into serving-sized pieces and place in roasting pan.
  4. Slice and chop the vegetables and place them evenly with the fish. Add spices.
  5. Drizzle with wine and oil and add little pats of butter.
  6. Fold the foil to form as tight a seal as possible. Cover seam with an extra piece of foil, and tightly fold at the joints.
  7. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Tip!

Mix it up! This recipe is super versatile. Use either frozen (thawed) or fresh fish. Use your own favorite fish! Cod, hake, haddock, or grouper are all perfect options. This recipe also works well with plaice fillets that you roll up. You can also try throwing some peeled or shell-on shrimp into the mix. The simplest, best option is to add peeled and cooked shrimp just before serving. But you can also try adding shrimp toward the end of cooking. Just be careful when opening and resealing the foil package mid-way through, to avoid leaking – or burning your hands with steam!

    Throw a 4 OZ stick of butter in a rice coker, elt add a piece of salmon seasoned to taste. When the salmon is done on bottom (4 or 5 minutes) flip to the other side, when done scoop out and through in 8 OZ cauliflower untill browned to your desire of doneness.

    EZ and quick fish and vegetables with butter

    Eric, thank you for the suggestion; I have a pressure cooker and I have not yet tried cooking fish/seafood in it.
