Baked Fish in Brown Paper Bag (with Photos)

This is a great fish dish. I also like to add other veggies, like fresh string beans or asparagus. It's also tasty to top with small shrimp or crawfish tails. The photos are done with shrimp and asparagus.

Baked Fish in Brown Paper Bag
Serving Size: 2

2 large fish fillets (use a hearty, firm fish. I used sea bass)
1 medium brown paper lunch bag
Olive oil
1/2 medium rutabaga, peeled and cut into small cubes
2 medium red potatoes, washed and cut into small cubes
2 teaspoons garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon shallots, finely minced
1 bunch green onion, sliced
Fresh grated ginger, about 2 teaspoons
Salt & cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Wash the fillets and put aside. Take the paper bag and spread oil (1-3 teaspoons) all over the inside, outside and bottom of the bag so that it is shiny, but not dripping with oil.

Spread the minced garlic, shallots and ginger over your fish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover the fish with the diced potatoes and rutabaga. Top with sliced green onion. If you add shrimp, add before root veggies.

Now, place the filets into the oiled bag. Fold the open end of the bag over several times to make sure it is well sealed. Place the packages on a cookie sheet when done.

Place cookie sheet in the oven and cook for about 35-40 minutes. The paper bag puffs and turns a darker brown. When you open it up, remember, it's been steaming inside, so watch your hands and face! Be Careful! Enjoy!


Go, eat!!
