  • 4 4 ounce filets white fish
  • 1 large shallot minced
  • 1/2 pound french green beans sliced diagonally in thin pieces about 3-4 inches long
  • 3 medium carrots peeled and julienned into 3-4 inch pieces, to match length of green beans (tip: you can also purchase matchstick carrots in a bag if you don't want to cut them yourself)
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon zest divided
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper divided
  • 8 pieces parchment paper cut into 8 inch squares


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the shallots, green beans, carrots, 1 Tablespoon lemon zest, half the olive oil, salt & pepper.
  • Stack 2 sheets of parchment paper together, and repeat with the remaining paper so that you have 4 stacks of paper.
  • Place 1/4 of the vegetable mixture in the center of 2 stacked sheets of parchment paper.
  • Top vegetable mixture with a 4 ounce portion of wild cod.
  • Brush each cod portion with remaining olive oil and lemon zest, then sprinkle with remaining salt & pepper.
  • Create a packet by folding opposite ends together, then roll the two remaining ends to create a seal.
  • Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet and place in preheated oven.
  • Bake for 18 minutes, then remove from oven and open packets. Fish should flake easily with a fork. If it isn't done, re-seal packet and place back in oven for another 2-5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
