Fish in Parchment Paper


Rinse fish under cold water, remove any bones and place on paper towels to dry. In a skillet over low heat, saute chopped onion and celery in olive oil for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in shredded carrots and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375°. Unfold parchment paper and place half of sauteed vegetables, in equal amounts, on one half of each paper (near fold). Place one fish fillet on vegetables and top with remaining vegetables, again evenly dividing the mixture. Place equal amounts of lemon slices, dill, ground pepper and butter on top of vegetable mixture. Fold and tightly seal each packet; place packets on baking sheets and put in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Immediately transfer to serving plates and open packets at the table. 4 servings.
