I wanted a quick dinner that was largely hands-off. Oven-roasted fish is usually my go-to. Tonight the fish monger had some beautiful rockfish filets. Dinner!
Ingredients serves 4
- 4 rockfish filets
- 1 thinly sliced organic Meyer lemon
- cleaned, trimmed ramps
- freshly ground salt
- freshly ground pepper
- olive oil
- freshly squeezed lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lay one filet on a piece of parchment paper, approximately 12" square - or enough that you can completely envelop your filet and create a parchment packet.
Cover the filet with lemon slices and lay the ramps on top. Drizzle the filet with lemon juice and olive oil. Sprinkle with freshly ground salt and freshly ground pepper.
Bring the sides of the parchment up around the filet and fold the edges together, rolling it down to the fish. Crimp the ends together, folding them in till fish is enclosed. Place the packets on a baking sheet. Roast for 25 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and let steam for another five minutes. Serve the packets on a plate and let each diner open his or her own.
To eat: open up the packets and let people top the roasted filets with Caramelized Ramps.
