Recipe Notes

How to fold parchment:

Place fish and vegetables in the center of the parchment sheet. Fold in two sides of the paper to the center, then smooth down and crease the sides until the paper stays. Do the same with the remaining two sides, smoothing down and creasing the paper until it stays in place.
