Baked Fish Parcels - a simple weeknight meal ready in 30 minutes

Baked Fish Parcels


  • 2 x 200-300g Barramundi Fillets or a fish of your choosing
  • 1 lemon; zest + slice lemon for serving
  • 1 large tomatoes; sliced
  • Chives or your choice of herb
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley to serve


  • Pre-heat oven to 200 C / 400 F. Cut off enough baking paper to completely wrap around the fish. Place fish on baking paper and pat dry. Season well and top with lemon zest and the sliced tomatoes, herbs and butter. Wrap the fish so it is sealed and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Serve topped with parsley and a slice of lemon.


If using a thin piece of fish adjust cooking time accordingly
Be careful when opening the bags as the steam is very hot. My little guy likes to open the bag himself, so I cut a whole in the back for the steam to escape and cool before serving to him.
