Halibut & Asparagus in Papillote with Olive & Herb Relish

You’ll be quite pleased with the ease of preparation with this Halibut & Asparagus recipe. Don’t let the papillote scare you: that’s just French for “parchment paper.” Fold a serving of fresh halibut, spears of asparagus, garlic, and lemon into a packet of parchment paper and bake. Looks fancy, yes, but it’s easy. Add an herb relish made with farm-fresh flavors from various farm stands at the Bloomfield Saturday Market, back in summer mode starting May 7.

HALIBUT & ASPARAGUS IN PAPILLOTE WITH OLIVE & HERB RELISH RECIPE

INGREDIENTS FOR THE RELISH:

  • 1 cup Castelvetrano olives, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dill, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced

INGREDIENTS FOR THE HALIBUT:

  • 4 6-oz halibut filets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch asparagus

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all relish ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Assemble the pouches: Tear off 4 squares of parchment that are at least 12 inches on each side.
  4. Place 1 fish filet on each piece of parchment. Lightly sprinkle the fish with salt and minced garlic. Line each piece of fish with lemon slices and place asparagus on each side of the fish.
  5. Lift the right and left sides of the paper up and towards the center, directly above the fish. Touch the two sides together and tightly roll them, folding as you go, until you reach the fish. Roll and crimp the top and bottom ends, rolling them towards the counter, away from the center of the fish. When you reach the end, tuck the end underneath the fish.
  6. Place each pouch on a rimmed baking sheet, using the weight of the fish to hold the ends in place.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the fish is fully cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Serve warm with reserved lemon slices and garnish with relish.
