Method

 
Oven temperature: 180°C
1. Preheat the oven. Cut four sheets of baking paper to about 30 x 40cm.

2. Place a fish fillet in the centre of each piece of baking paper and season it with salt and black pepper.

3. Mix the chilli, fennel, garlic, tomato, lemon zest and parsley, and distribute the mixture amongst the fish. Drizzle olive oil over each fillet, as well as about 15ml dry white wine. Lastly, scatter the olives over and fold up each parcel. Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake them for about 15-20 minutes. Serve the fish immediately.

Wine suggestion: Open a Sauvignon Blanc, or enjoy the same wine you used in the parcels.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
