Fish en Papillote (Camper's Fish!)

Traveling in the wilderness is no joke. Thank goodness Lady Eostre supplies Dena'an with an abundance of fresh ingredients throughout the land! Catch a fish, pick a lemon, and forage for some herbs and you can cook this dish with only some parchment paper and a campfire.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15-17 minutes

First seen in: Ep 27

  • 1-2 mild white fish filets (tilapia or halibut are both great choices!)

  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary

  • 1/2 lemon, sliced

  • 2 T melted butter

  • Salt & pepper

  • Large piece of baking parchment (9x13in works great) (or foil if you don't have parchment on hand!)

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Put the parchment onto a baking sheet and brush melted butter on one half of the parchment, you only need to butter the area you intend on placing your fish.

  3. Gently lay your fish onto the melted butter area and brush the tops of the fish with melted butter.

  4. Season with salt and pepper and then lay your lemon sliced and fresh rosemary springs around the fish.

  5. Now crimp the edges of two sides of parchment towards the fish, then fold the other side over the top of the fish to meet the other side of the parchment, folding and sealing the edge, rolling towards the fish until it is well-sealed. Try to keep all edges sealed so you don't lose any steam in the baking process! You can pin the edges together with toothpicks or oven-safe magnets if you need to.

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes just until done and allow to rest for a few minutes before opening up your packet.

  7. Enjoy with a side of rice or our Herb Garlic Bread!
