A couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of seafood.  So the wife made another nice dish for me last night so I thought I would share it with you guys.

It Iis Red Snapper fillets cooked in parchment paper.  Here are the pics.

This is what it looks like before you open the bag after cooking.



Here it is opened.  The fish is laying on a bed of vegetables.



TRY IT, YOU"LL LIKE IT!   If you try it let me know what you think.


Here is the recipe.

Clarified butter   as needed                       3 oz. red bell pepper, julienne
3 oz.  Leek, cut julienne                             6 - 6 oz. Red Snapper fillets, skin on
4 oz. fennel bulb, cut julienne                    Salt and pepper to taste
3 oz. carrots, julienne                                9 oz. basil butter
3 oz. celery, julienne

A side note.. The fennel bulb gives the dish a hint of anise flavor.

Cut six heart shaped pieces of parchment paper large enough to contain one portion of fish and vegetables when folded in half.

Brush each piece of parchment paper with clarified butter.

Toss the veggies together.  Place one-sixth of the veggies on each half of each piece of the buttered parchment paper.

Place one protion of red snapper on each portion of the veggies, skin side up; season with salt and pepper.

Top each portion of fish with 1.5 oz. of basil butter.

Fold each piece of paper over and crimp the edges to seal it.

Place the envelopes on baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated oven at 450* for 8 to 10 minutes.

When baked, the parchment paper should puff up and brown.  Remove from the oven and serve immediately.  The envelope should be cut open carefully tableside to allow the aromatice steam to escape. 

BASIL BUTTER RECIPE
Mince 2 oz. basil and 2 oz. shallots; to 1 pound of softened, unsalted butter. Add 2 teaspoons lemon juice.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Yep, every now and then she surprises me with a special meal.  She hates cooking at home though, and I can understand why.  She works in Red Lobsters kitchen all day and isnt thrilled about cooking when she gets home.  She keeps on going though.  I know I am lucky.  Ist that the saying, that most of us guys dont deserve the wife we have?
