OVERSTUFFED SNAPPER COOKED IN PARCHMENT PAPER

on

Supper was a breeze. Well, sort of, when you consider that it took me just a few minutes to cook and prepare supper. I went the easy and nutritious route. Allowed my oven to do the work by cooking my snapper in parchment paper. Cooking in parchment paper makes it easier for clean-up in the aftermath. I made sure to layer the baking sheet with foil before placing parchment paper.

After scoring snapper, I seasoned with salt, black pepper and crushed garlic. I did a quick sautéed of an assortment of root veggies like onions, strips of carrot bell pepper, etc. Then, these were cooled and stuffed inside the cavity and head of fish.

With a squeeze of lime, crushed pimento, finely chopped scotch bonnet peppers, a pat of butter and drizzle of olive oil, snapper was wrapped in parchment for roasting at 360 degrees fahrenheit  for fifteen minutes. All the veggies and lemon released a delicious sauce that flavored fish.

Fish was cooked to a beautiful flaky finish and was served with sautéed purple and green cabbage along with left-over side of whole-wheat rice and pigeon peas cooked in coconut milk. A creamy slice of nature’s butter (avocado) completed my meal.
