A modern take on the traditional French method of cooking “en papillots” (in a sealed package), this recipe uses aluminum foil rather than parchment paper to enclose the ingredients. Cooking this way reduces the need for any added fat, plus mingles and intensifies the flavors of the parcel’s contents.
1 Preheat oven to hot.
2 Combine garlic and fennel in small bowl.
3 Place fillets, skin-side down, on four separate squares of lightly oiled foil large enough to completely enclose fish. Top each fillet with equal amounts of the fennel mixture, top with one basil leaf each, drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of the wine. Gather corners of foil squares together over each fish, twist to enclose securely
4 Place parcels on oven tray, bake in hot oven for about 15 minutes or until fish is cooked as desired
5 Meanwhile, make caper anchovy salsa. combine salad.
6 Place remaining ingredients in medium bowl toss genty to combine salad
7 Unwrap parcels just before serving; divide fish, fennel side up, among serving plates. Top with salsa; accompany with salad.
