Easy Parchment Fillets

Boy, life sure gets a little crazy sometimes!
It's been almost 2 weeks since our last blog post! We usually never go that long between posts but, as I said, life can be a little crazy sometimes. This is one of those meals that is perfect for when you just can't seem to find any time but still want something delicious, nutritious, and filling. 
The entire meals is ready in about 30 minutes.

Easy Parchment Fillets

2 tsp oil
1 small carrot, thinly sliced
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
3 button mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper
1 tsp soy sauce
3 Basa fillets (or your favorite fish)

4 Tbsp whipping cream
1/2 tsp dill
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp white wine

Preheat oven to 400. 
In a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil and add carrot, pepper, and mushrooms. Saute for 2 - 3 minutes, adding salt and pepper and soy sauce. Remove from heat when veggies are almost completely cooked. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together cream, dill, lemon juice, and wine. 
Divide the vegetables evenly among 3 parchment envelopes (I used Culinary Parchment Cooking Bags) 

Place a fish fillet on top of the veggies in each bag. Top with 1/3 of the sauce.

Close the parchment bags (by folding 2 or 3 times) and place on a cookie sheet. 
Bake at 400 for 10 - 15 minutes, until fish is cooked through. 
Cut bag open to remove the fish and veggies.

If you want to prepare the green beans and potatoes, as in the above meal, then just prep them before you start the fish. I cleaned them, cut them, and got the water boiling on the stove and then started the fish. By the time the fish was done the veggies were also done. 
Potatoes take about 15 - 20 minutes to boil, green beans about 10 minutes - so start the potatoes first. If they are done before the fish, simply drain and cover the pot and keep it on the stove top to keep warm. If the fish is done before the veggies - simply shut off the stove and keep the fish warm until the veggies are cooked. 

Easy, healthy, delicious. 
You can also reserve some of the sauce to drizzle on top of the fish before serving for an extra boost of flavor.
