Do not fear when you have to impress a crowd. This fish parcels recipe is a lifesaver. Use the freshest of fish available to get the most amazing fish parcels. This recipe is never going to fail as a main dish. I challenge you to give me a better recipe for this dish.
  Butter 20 Milliliter (1 1/2 Tablespoon)
  Onion 1 , sliced
  Potatoes 2 , peeled and thinly sliced
  Tomatoes 2 , sliced
  Green pepper 1 , seeded and sliced
  Fresh fish fillets 6
  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 45 Milliliter (3 Tablespoon)
  White wine 60 Milliliter (1/4 Cup)
  Fresh chives 15 Milliliter, chopped (1 Tablespoon)
  Chives 15 Milliliter, chopped (1 Tablespoon)
  Cornstarch 20 Milliliter, mixed (1 1/2 Tablespoon)
  Water 40 Milliliter (2 1/2 Tablespoon)

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)
2 Lightly oil six pieces of aluminum foil (or microwave-proof plastic wrap).

3 In a pan, melt butter.
4 Add onion and fry until transparent (or microwave together on HIGH 2 minutes).
5 Add potatoes, tomatoes and green pepper and stir for 1 minute (or microwave on HIGH 45 seconds).
6 Place a piece of fish on each piece of prepared foil and spoon mixed vegetables on top.
7 Sprinkle with lemon juice, wine and chives.
8 Fold foil around the fish mixture to make a parcel.
9 Arrange in a baking dish.

11 Carefully make a small hole in the foil and pour off liquid into a pan.
