Method

 
Lay a large piece of baking paper onto a plate.

Place the veg in the centre and top with fish, pesto, butter and tomatoes.

Season with salt and pepper.

Fold over the edges of the paper to form a sealed rectangle.

Steam in the microwave on full power for 2 ½ – 3 minutes. (I used a 1000W microwave oven - be careful when opening the parcels and they will be filled with hot steam.)

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
