    30 min

    Haddock, tomatoes and red and yellow peppers baked in individual aluminium foil parcels. Serve with rice for a healthy dinner. I use haddock, but feel free to use whichever type of fish you like.

    Serves: 6 

    • 6 fillets haddock
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 4 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
    • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6.
    2. Centre each piece of fish on an individual piece of aluminium foil (large enough to seal the fish and veg when folded). Sprinkle each piece of fish with salt and pepper. Divide the sliced tomatoes, onion and peppers between the 6 pieces of fish, and place on top of the filets. Sprinkle evenly with the capers and parsley. Then drizzle each fillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
    3. Fold and seal the foil into a parcel and place on a baking tray. Leave 5cm (2 in) between each parcel to provide heat circulation.
    4. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.
    5. Let rest for 5 minutes and unwrap. One parcel per person.


    You can also use baking parchment for the parcels instead of aluminium foil.

    This was the best. It left a wonderful taste in your mouth. I may even try it with boneless chicken breast. 5 stars for sure, in fact 10 stars.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Very colourful and beautiful presentation. I'm not very good at cooking fish, but this time I was able to turn out a fish dish that was very flavourful and delicious. Looking forward to making this again!  -  15 Sep 2008


    DELICIOUS!!! Incredibly flavourful and colourful. The fish just flaked and melted in our mouths. I will reduce the amount of olive oil and lemon juice next time, though so as not to have the juices run into my other food.  -  15 Sep 2008
