  • Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 1/2 cups vegetable mixture)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
  • 1 cup vertically sliced red onion
  • 3/4 cup (2-inch) julienne-cut celery
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper strips
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chervil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 (6-ounce) white sea bass fillets
  • 2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine, divided

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 6 ingredients, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.

Sprinkle fish evenly with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cut 2 (15-inch) squares of parchment paper. Fold each square in half, and open each. Place half of vegetable mixture near each fold. Top each serving with 1 fillet, 1 teaspoon butter, and 2 tablespoons wine. Fold paper; seal the edges with narrow folds. Place packets on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until parchment is puffy. Place on plates, and cut open. Serve immediately.
