  • Fold each sheet over fish and vegetables. Starting on one side, roll bottom side of parchmentup and over top side to seal; continue working around until pouch is sealed in a half-moonshape. Transfer both pouches to a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Steam-roast until parchment puffs and darkens slightly and fish is just cooked through, 10 to12 minutes. Carefully rip open pouches (scalding steam will be released) and serve.
