This is a great go to fish recipe. I think it needs a bit more seasoning. Otherwise its healthy, easy, fast and delicious. Sea bass works wonderfully in this style of preparation. Delicious! Ive made this many times and it works every time. You can change up the veggies for different flavour but the bok choy and celery stay nice and crunchy.

En papillote is the French term for food baked in a parchment paper packet; it's a favorite way of preparing fish in New Orleans. This recipe easily doubles to serve four.
