  • 4 zucchini, cut diagonally into 1cm-thick slices 
  • 4 x 200g skinless, boneless white fish fillets 
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto 
  • 250g medley cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives, drained, halved 
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled, thinly sliced 
  • 500g baby chat potatoes 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 60g baby rocket 
  1. Place 4 sheets of baking paper (about 30cm x 40cm) on kitchen bench.  
  2. Divide zucchini over the centre of paper sheets. Place fish on zucchini. Spread fish with pesto. Top with tomatoes, olives and garlic.  
  3. Lift sides of paper and fold over fish, then fold in ends of paper to form parcels. Place parcels, seam-side up, on a large baking tray. Bake in a preheated 220°C oven (fan-forced) for 20 minutes.  
  4. Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave potatoes until tender. Drain. Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with oil and season with freshly ground pepper. 
  5. Carefully open parcels. Serve fish with potatoes and rocket.  

Tips

  • Instead of baking in oven, parcels can be cooked on a preheated barbecue plate for 20 minutes. 
  • Replace white fish fillets with salmon fillets, if preferred.
