Tuscan Halibut in Parchment


Cooking fish in parchment helps to retain moisture and makes clean up a breeze!

This recipe is adapted from one by Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD and Liz Weiss, MS, RD, the co-founders of Meal Makeover Moms.

Their version is cooked in foil which we prefer to avoid, partly because of lingering suspicions about an aluminum-Alzheimer's connection and partly because bauxite/aluminum mining is often problematic.


Tuscan Halibut in Foil

Serves 4

Four (6 oz) Alaskan Halibut fillet portions
Sea salt and organic black pepper
1 small zucchini, cut in quarters lengthwise, then sliced in 1/4-inch slices
1 small yellow squash, cut in quarters lengthwise, then sliced in 1/4-inch slices
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried chopped organic basil


Preheat the oven to 400 F.   
  • Cut four 12 inch square pieces of cooking parchment and set aside.

  • Pat the Halibut portions dry with paper towels. Place one portion in the middle of each piece of parchment. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside.

  • Combine the zucchini, squash, olives, cheese, olive oil, and basil in a bowl. Divide the mixture evenly and place on top of the Halibut portions (about 1/2 cup per serving).

  • Fold the parchment and seal the edges with narrow folds, pierced by moist toothpicks, or paperclips, etc.  Place the packets on a baking sheet and bake until the fish is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 18 minutes.

  • Open the packets (be careful of the steam!), place on individual plates, and serve immediately with rice or pasta.
