Flavourful Fish

Quick, Easy and Smells Delicious (not fishy!)

1 lb. fish fillets
8 large lettuce leaves
2 lemons, sliced thinly
Salt and pepper to taste

Try varying the flavour using:

Grated fresh ginger, green onions and garlic for an Oriental flavour
Oregano and garlic for a Greek version
Garlic, onions, Tabasco and cayenne pepper for a spicy dish


Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut fish fillets into four pieces. Steam or microwave lettuce leaves until slightly wilted. In the centre of each leaf, place two slices of lemon, salt and pepper to taste, and your choice of herbs and spices. Place fish in the centre of the leaf (flesh side down on top of seasonings), and wrap it up. Place bundles in a lightly oiled baking dish and bake for about 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.

You may discard the leaf, or serve the fish in the leaves for an attractive presentation. This easy, low-fat method of cooking results in moist, flavourful fish, without the smell of cooked fish in your home.

Serve with wild rice, salad and your choice of vegetables for a healthy, elegant dinner.

Serves four.
