  • 4 6-8 ounce pieces of dense white fish like halibut, cod or sea bass.
  • 2 small summer squash, cut in thin half moons
  • ½ bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons freshly chopped oregano, 1 ½ teaspoons dried
  • 4 springs fresh rosemary, 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1 ½ tablespoon white wine, optional
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Cooking Spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lay out 4 large sheets, approximately 18 inches each, of heavy duty foil. Also cover a cookie sheet in foil.
  • Place one piece of fish in the center of each piece of foil.
  • Squeeze the lemon equally across all four pieces of fish.
  • Use half the salt and pepper to season each piece of fish on both sides.
  • Divide the butter in half and place the small portion on top of each piece of fish.
  • Pile the vegetables and herbs on top of the fish.
  • Season the vegetables with the remaining salt, pepper and butter.
  • Start folding the foil and carefully pour a quarter of the wine on top of each packet.
  • Finish folding the packet by bringing the middle together and folding over the ends. You want it to be completely sealed so all the flavors stay inside the packet.
  • Place the packets on the foil lined cookie sheet.
  • Cook in oven for 20-25 minutes until fish flakes with fork.
