Fish In A Bag

Fish In A Bag

What's great about it

This is the perfect meal to make this Easter.  A classic French style en papilotte dish that basically means "cooked in a bag".  This method allows the food to hold in moisture and flavour as it steams inside its little pouch and it's a clean and healthy way of cooking fish. I've cooked this simply by topping the fish with a little olive oil, a hint of sea salt, a slice of lemon and a little thyme.  I've used blue eye for this recipe, but it will work with other fish such as salmon, trout, wild barramundi, mackerel, herring, whiting and snapper. Serve with a fresh leaf salad, oven roasted sweet potato chunky chips or steamed green vegetables and squeeze of lemon.


Serves 2

2 x 180g fish fillet  - (blue  eye, salmon, ocean trout, barramundi, snapper)

2 teaspoons olive oil

pinch sea salt

1 lemon


2 x pieces 40 cm x 30 cm baking paper



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.
  2. Lay the two pieces of baking paper onto a working bench and place a fish fillet in the middle of each piece of baking paper.
  3. Spoon over 1 teaspoon olive oil onto each piece of fish and season with a little sea salt.
  4. Slice over a piece of lemon and add a little thyme.
  5. Enclose the fish with the baking paper by firstly folding both ends into the middle, then seal the ends, twisting the paper like a cracker.
  6. Place onto a baking tray.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes until cooked through - this depends on the thickness of the fish.
  8. Serve with leafy greens or steamed green vegetables and enjoy.
