If you have the courage to turn on your oven, despite the heat then throw you in a dish simple and quick to make, perfect when you don’t want to eat something too heavy. And your oven will not remain lit for very long… We are delighted with the fish with lemon en papillote ! For a first test, it was really a success !

What I like about this fish is that it is very quick to prepare and very tasty. This is a dish that can also be delicious in the winter and for the holidays of end of the year, with a wild rice for example. In the summer, it will be perfect with a good green salad…
