Mediterranean Foil Packets

From weeknight meals to backyard barbecues, foil packets have a well-earned reputation for being easy, versatile and downright ingenious. This modern version of the old-school campfire dinner is delicious with salmon, halibut or cod, and makes an elegant, make-ahead supper. For packets that are both leakproof and food-safe, use heavy-duty aluminum foil lined with a layer of unbleached baking parchment.
Yield: Serves 4
Total Time: 25 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 10 min
Additional:
Ingredients
2 lemons, cut into slices and wedges
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
12 ounces fingerling potatoes, cooked and cut into bitesize pieces
20 cherry tomatoes, halved
20 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
4 teaspoons non-pareil capers
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
4 sprigs fresh oregano
4 springs fresh baby dill
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Balsamic vinegar for drizzling
Preparation
1.  On a work surface, place four squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil approximately 12 to 14” in length/width. Top each square with a same-size piece of unbleached baking parchment.
2.  Place a lemon slice in the center of each packet, and top with a portion of fish skin side down. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the potatoes, tomatoes and olives between the four packets, arranging them on/around the fish in a tidy mound.
3.  Sprinkle with capers and top with a sprig each of dill and oregano.
4.  To close each packet, bring opposite sides together over the ingredients and fold them down a few times as if closing a sack lunch. Then fold the ends toward the center 2 to 3 times, creasing them neatly to ensure leakproof seals.
5.  Preheat oven to 450 F or prep the grill for medium-high heat. Place packets seam-side up on a sheet pan and bake on center rack in oven, or place packets seam-side up directly on grill. Bake or grill for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
6.  To serve, place packets on individual plates and carefully open the center seam to reveal the steaming contents. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and garnish with crumbled feta and lemon wedges.
