  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

  • Lemon peel for garnish


Combine fish, garlic, parsley, rosemary, lemon zest, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Cover, place in the refrigerator and marinade for 15 minutes.

Using a vegetable peeler, peel ribbons of zucchini and carrot into a bowl. Add the onion, tomatoes and capsicum.

Using four pieces of baking paper, large enough to make parcels divide the vegetables between the four parcels. Top with the fish and marinade and twist the paper closed.

    sounds similar to how I like my schnappper, when I can get it.with the exception of rice. Just the fish with Veges is enough for me.

    Hi Unicorn: Hope this gives you a bit of a laugh I got it off FISHNET website.

    If you drive an OWDIE OR VOLKZ-VARGEN or e-ven a PORSHA, it is "schnapper".
    On ze uzza-hand if you drive a FORD OR HOLDEN then it's snapper.
    There's a lot of PPP's in your schnappper!

    I love fish too and my favourite is Blue-Eye Cod. Then 2nd, a whole Snapper baked with parsley/lemon juice,thinly sliced onion and topped with slices of tomato (all wrapped in foil and baked for around 25 mins. 3rd comes Atlantic Salmon grilled on the BBQ.
