    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    For the black cod and ratatouille: Cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper that is about 2-inches wider than the tray on each side (to wrap up the fish completely). Tightly line the vegetable slices to accommodate the length of the fish in an alternating pattern. Season the slices with salt and pepper. Lay the black cod on top of the vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil.

    Garnish with the red pepper, garlic, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Add the butter on top.

    Bring up each side of the parchment paper to the center and make small folds downwards, creating a secure bundle. Crimp the ends and twist to seal the fish and ratatouille inside.

    Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, until flaky.

    For the herb salad: Mix the basil, chives, parsley, celery leaves, chervil, and dill together. Drizzle the vinegar and oil over top. Season with salt and pepper and toss!

    For serving: Transfer the papillote to a serving plate. With a knife, carefully cut the paper to open the papillote and garnish with the herb salad.

      I watched the program and thought this would be a nice change of pace and it was awesome. Made it tonight for dinner and loved it. It is so easy and impressive when served. Just wish I could find some of the ingredients like baby eggplant. I used regular eggplant cut in half and was good but would love to use all of the same ingredients. Otherwise, it is a wonderful dish.

      This is a super easy recipie to follow. I used my mandolin slicer for evenly sliced veggies :). Had to add a little bit of salt/pepper once plated, but overall, very happy with the outcome and it looks really impressive when you unwrap the parchment paper. I will absolutely try this again and even serve to friends....lol

      Try this one out!
