Makes 4 Servings

Total Prep Time: 30 minutes


2 salmon fillets

2 cod fillets

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

a few sprigs of parsley, thyme or tarragon

1 lemon, sliced

Pinch of sea salt and black pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil


Tear out 4 pieces of aluminum foil or parchment paper, enough to hold and seal fish in a parcel. Cut fish fillets into half and divide among foil squares, placing them in the middle. Top each with tomatoes, herbs and a few slices of lemon. Season with salt and pepper then drizzle with olive oil. Fold sides of the foil together to form a parcel. Make sure the parcels are well sealed. Steam parcels in a steamer for 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you can bake them in the oven at 400°F/200°C for 10-12 minutes.
