Cod en PapilloteIngredients

  • 4 to 6 ounces thick boneless, skinless cod fillet

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • Herbs (fennel fronds, marjoram, chervil, chives, dill, parsley, basil, thyme, rosemary—the more, the better)

  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine

  • 1 tablespoon crème fraiche

  • Zest of 1/8 lemon

  • Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Assemble as many packages as you like, following these instructions:

In the center of a large square of heavy duty foil, place 1 teaspoon butter. Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides, and place on the butter. Top with a good amount of herbs, zest, white wine, and crème fraiche. Seal the bundle, and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, and serve immediately. I like to serve it with crusty warm bread or plain boiled potatoes.
