Method

 
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. 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.

Chef's tip: Leave out the white wine for a healthier meal.

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