  • Bring long ends of paper together and fold 3 times to make a seam. Tuck short ends under to secure.

  • Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until puffed and fish is opaque, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer packets to plates, gently pull open, and serve immediately.

I was looking for something healthy and quick, and this was great. I like the flavors in this meal a lot, and salmon worked fine.
