Our famous fishylicious fish parcels
While Mamma was on action cricket duty with the little guys, Super Dad had his turn in the kitchen for this week. He doesn’t cook for us often, but when he does it’s always amazing!
These fish parcels are super easy and super delicious. They started off with each fillet being baked in it’s own foil “parcel” but Mamma decided that we don’t have time for all that! They kept the name though, just because it works.
Place 4-6 frozen hake fillets into a glass oven dish. Drizzle with a good glug of olive oil, ground coarse salt and black pepper. Squeeze over juice of half a lemon, then cut slices of lemon and randomly arrange them into the dish as well.
Cover the fish with 4 handfuls of baby spinach leaves, crumble 3/4 cup of feta cheese on top and add 1/2 packet (or as many as you like) pitted green olives.
Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes until the fish flakes easily using a fork.
Serve with white rice. I like to use the juices from the fish dish to dress my rice.
