The Hidden Hostess, Rebecca Elman, shares a recipe for Roasted Fish with Leeks and Mushrooms in Parchment Parcels.
Roasted Fish in Parchment Parcels with Leeks and Mushrooms
2 – six-ounce pieces of thick white fish, halibut, cod, flounder, salmon
4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced thinly
2 medium leeks, cleaned, white parts sliced thinly
2 tablespoons olive oil + more for fish
2 teaspoons white wine
Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a sauté pan. Add sliced mushrooms,
leeks and a pinch of salt. Sauté until they start to brown and get
caramelized. Remove mushrooms and leeks and place in a small bowl
Drizzle fish with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
Fold a large sheet of parchment paper in half. Cut a heart shape and
open it up.
Place a piece of fish in the center of the paper and top the fish with half
of the leek/mushroom mixture. Add 1 teaspoon of white wine on top
of the fish.
Repeat with the second piece of this.
Fold the parchment paper around the edges tightly in ¼ inch folds to
create a half moon shape. Make sure you press as you crimp and fold
to seal the packets well, otherwise the steam will escape.
Place parcels on a sheet pan and bake for 10-12 minutes.
To serve, cut open the packets and serve directly in the parchment on a
plate or remove the fish to the plate using a spatula, being sure you
don’t leave the juices behind.
