2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients for the fish

Heat the oven to 400°F.

  • Cut the lemon in half crosswise and thinly slice one half into rounds; save the remaining lemon half for another use. [Thinly slice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.] 
  • Cut the tomatoes in half; season with salt and pepper. 


Assemble the parchment packets

Lay the parchment paper sheets side by side. Place 1 fish fillet on each sheet (skin side down for the snapper) and season generously with salt and pepper. Top the fillets with the lemon slices and tomatoes, dividing evenly; drizzle each with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil.   

Working with 1 sheet at a time, bring 2 opposite sides of the parchment to the center and fold them together several times to create a tight seam. Fold up each end to form a tight seal. 


Bake the packets

Place the packets on a sheet pan, sealed sides up, and bake until the parchment is puffed and browned and the fish is tender when pierced with a skewer or sharp knife, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.


Make the zucchini salad

  • Peel and thinly slice enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup]. 
  • Trim the ends from the zucchini; very thinly slice the zucchini crosswise into rounds.
  • If desired, coarsely chop the almonds. 
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.

In a medium bowl, toss together the shallots, zucchini, almonds, 2 to 3 teaspoons oil, half the parsley, and up to half the Aleppo chile. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Open the fish packets, being careful of any venting steam, and garnish with the remaining parsley and as much Aleppo chile as you like. Transfer to individual plates and serve with the zucchini salad.
