Quick Fish Parcels

I know that it appears that I am always either cooking or baking, but sometimes I really can’t be bothered to spend hours in the kitchen preparing dinner.  Saturday night was one of those nights, my husband was out at a concert so I pulled together this little fishy parcel from the freezer.

So what is in there?  a frozen fish fillet, a few frozen prawns, a handful of rice, a sprinkling of sweetcorn with a knob of butter on top and some salt and pepper, then you make up the parcel, leaving one end open.  Into that opening you pour half a glass of white wine, then seal it up.  Cook from frozen, you can even stick it all back in the freezer until you are ready to cook it.  Heat the oven to 200C and bake for 30 minutes.

 The rice absorbs the wine and fishy, buttery juices and as you just tip the whole lot onto your plate, the washing up is minimal!

    I LOVE recipes en papillote and this looks delicious, we eat a lot of fish and this would make a great early supper dish!

    Such a great idea. Bookmarking for next busy night which seems to be everynight at the moment!

    I love doing fish parcels in the oven but have never added rice before – thanks for the tip!
