This dish is infinitely variable. You can make it with butter instead of oil, with stock instead of white wine, you can leave out the tomatoes and olives and you can use any mix of herbs you choose. Just remember that the total cooking time is 20 minutes so any vegetable that will take longer than that will need to be pre-cooked.
Cod (Fillet or Steak)
1 teaspoon Capers
1 glass Dry white wine
1 handful Fresh Thyme
4-5 Cherry Tomatoes
2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Take a large oblong piece of foil and raise up the corners so you have the start of a parcel
Put the olive oil onto the foil, then add the fish, tomatoes cut in half, olives and chopped capers. Scatter the thyme over the fish and season with a little pepper
Pull up the foil and start sealing up the sides. Your aim is to create a package with space at the top so the fish steams in the juices of the vegetables and the wine
Pour in the white wine and seal up your parcel
Put in a pre-heated oven at 170c for 20 minutes
You can serve this at the table in foil packages, or unwrap them carefully and plate up.
