The ingredients gently steam inside the parchment packet until the fish is tender and covered with a flavorful sauce. The recipe ingredients are as follows:


4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh salsa, divided
1 (9-ounce) package or container of artichoke hearts
1 lemon, thinly sliced


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle the halibut fillets moderately with salt and pepper. Cut parchment paper in four 15-inch squares and fold the squares in half. Inside each parchment packet place shallots, one halibut fillet and one tablespoon of salsa. Place the artichoke hearts and lemon slices on top of each fillet. Then fold each packet closed and seal the edges in small folds. Put the packets on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees or until your oven thermometer reaches 140-145 degrees when inserted through a packet and into a fillet. Remove from the oven, cut each packet open and serve. Enjoy the delicious aroma and flavor. (Yields 4 servings.)
