What you'll need

  • FOR THE BOX
  • 1 roll of parchment paper
  • 1 roll of cooking twine
  • FOR THE FISH
  • 4 fillets of red snapper, tilapia fish or whatever fish you have around the house. Make sure the skin is off
  • 8 oz of cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • ½ cup of chopped kalamata olives
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • ½ cup caper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt to taste

How to make it

  1. Place 4 pieces of parchment paper spread out on a work surface. On each piece, place a fish and spread all ingredients on top evenly over it.

  2. Gather all the sides of the parchment paper to form a pouch. Tie a piece of kitchen twine and tie in a knot.

  3. Do this for each. Place all of the pouches on a roasting tray in a 400-degree oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes unti the fish is cooked through until flaky. Cut the tie off of pouch and serve in origami squares that we prepared while the fish was cooking.
