"The beauty of this meal is that you can serve the cod and vegetables inside of the parcel they are cooked in and this reduces the cleaning up!"Caitríona Redmond

  1. Preheat a (fan) oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Cut out on large square (about 2 hand lengths square) of baking parchment and the same of tinfoil.
  2. Lay the tinfoil flat on the table and lay the baking parchment directly on top.
  3. In the centre of the baking parchment, first put the sliced scallions on the bottom. Then the cod on top and season with the salt and pepper. Put the cherry tomatoes on top of the cod, followed by some fresh basil leaves. Scrunch the paper up into a parcel and then scrunch the tinfoil around the paper so that no air can escape.
  4. Lift the parcel onto a heavy bottomed baking tray then bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the balsamic vinegar then with some steamed baby new potatoes and a side salad.

Tip: To barbecue, place the tin foil parcel directly onto the grill on a medium heat for 15 minutes.
