How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 450°. Put four 12-inch squares of aluminum foil on a work surface and brush lightly with cooking oil.

Step 2

Put a fish fillet in the center of each square of foil. Sprinkle the fillets with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Spread the fish with the pesto. Cover the pesto with the carrots and top with the zucchini. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Gather the foil around the fish and drizzle the fish with the oil and wine. Fold the edges of the foil to make a sealed package. Put the foil packages on a baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake the fish until just done, about 12 minutes. Open the foil packages and transfer the fillets with their vegetable topping to plates. Pour the juices over the top.

Step 4

Fish Alternatives: You can use other small, flat, white fish fillets, with or without the skin, such as red snapper, pompano, or striped bass.

Step 5

Wine Recommendation: The assertive flavors and acidity of a sauvignon blanc will work particularly well with the pesto here. Choose one from the Alto Adige region of Italy, or try a more aggressive version from New Zealand.
