Halibut in Parchment with Basil Oil

Baking fish in parchment paper, a quick cooking method, gently preserves the fishs tenderness while capturing its flavor. The fish may be placed on a bed of herbs or vegetables, or topped with a sauce, flavored oil or butter. Cooking fish inside a packet intensifies its taste and envelops the fish with a cloud of fragrance that is released when the parchment is cut for serving.

Has a favorite in the summer
August 7, 2012
We make this all of the time in the spring and summer. We like to tone down the garlic by blanching it and bump up the lemon flavor by adding extra fresh lemon juice. Make sure you toast the nuts! Don't be lazy; it's worth it. And foil works just as well as the parchment paper for creating packets and is easier to seal the fish in. We also make extra basil oil so it can be added to rice or quinoa. Have used this recipe for halibut and cod and it's always great.
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
