Fish and Veggie Pockets


I got the idea from Jamie Oliver's Book and it is a quick and easy recipe for those who don't have time. You can also substitute the Fish with Chicken if you want a change and play around with the veggies, put what you like. This recipe is for two people. You can even make the pockets and freeze them for later use.

  • 2 portions of mackerel fish (Fresh if you can get it)
  • broccoli (about 6 small stems)
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 big leek cut up and boiled in water for 2 minutes to make soft [omit for BT]
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 4 asparagus (cut into 1cm chunks)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Sprinkle of soy sauce [or tamari]
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine [omit for BT]
  • sea salt and pepper [omit pepper for BT] and fish spice if you have (use chicken spice if you do that version)
  • 2 pieces of foil about 20cm long each [or parchment paper]
How to make it:
  1. Prepare all your vegetables first, this makes the assembly much faster.
  2. Take a piece of foil and fold it in half, fold the sides twice to the inside (1cm width) and leave one side open. You now have an 'Envelope Pocket'
  3. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius/ 425 degrees F/ gas 7.
  4. Rub the Fish with a bit of Olive oil and spice with light sprinkling of Fish spice.
  5. Put 1 Fish and half the vegetables in one pocket, do the same for the other pocket.
  6. Sprinkle with Soy Sauce, White Wine, Salt and Pepper to taste.
  7. Close the final edge (Double fold), making sure you don't pierce the bag.
  8. Slide Pocket onto a roasting tray and place the tray in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 min.
  9. Place Pocket on the plate, break open and serve.
  10. The time for cooking may vary to the thickness and/or size of the fish you start off with. If it is thin, check after 20 min but make sure if you use thin fish to slice veggies very thin so they will cook through.
