Last week, for my birthday, I made fish. I frequently cook it in parchment paper, in individual servings, so everyone can have exactly what they like. My dearly beloved especially loved this creation, and with only one pan to wash, so did I!
FISH FLORENTINE IN PARCHMENT
White fish filets
Frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
minced onion (optional)
thinly sliced mushrooms (optional)
shredded Parmesan cheese
Tear off a generous square of parchment paper for each serving. Spread about 1/2 cup spinach on each piece of parchment, lightly salt it, and sprinkle the onion over it, if desired. Top with a little parmesan. Place the filets in single layer atop each bed of spinach, very lightly salt and pepper, then add mushrooms for those who like them. Top with thin pats of butter and more Parmesan. Arrange the packets on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. Serve over a bed of rice or angel hair.
See? Easy peasy. One baking sheet, one pan, and you still get your veggies. And cheese. Because life is always better with cheese.
Happy Thursday, everyone!
