Parchment Wrapped Cod with Rice and Squash
Here are the ingredients/equipment I used:
4 cod loins
half a stick of butter
3 medium zucchini sliced
salt and pepper
wild rice (needs water and olive oil to cook)
2 baking pans
1 small sauce pan
The rice is fairly straightforward - cook it according to the package directions. White rice takes 20 minutes and wild rice takes about an hour.
The fish in parchment paper is more fun! Cooking fish in parchment paper keeps it nice and moist.
Rip off a big sheet of parchment paper. Put the cod loin in the middle. Season with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Add the veggies around it - in this case, sliced zucchini. Put a pat of butter on top. Wrap it all up in a neat package and set it inside the baking pan so the butter doesn't leak all over the oven.
Depending on the thickness (filets less, loins more), cook for 15-30 minutes on 400 degrees. It's done when the cod is flaky and the veggies are soft.
Cooking in parchment paper is awesome! Everything comes in one neat package, and you just add the side (rice for this meal) and serve.
