Fish in a bag with Oldfields Applefresco Cider

  • 1 x 130g white fish fillet, skinned (Halibut or other sustainably sourced white fish)
  • 1 small shallot, finely sliced (approx. 30g)
  • 5 cherry or small plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 6 black olives, sliced
  • 3 new potatoes, cooked
  • Few sprigs of basil, chopped
  • 1 small courgette, finely sliced (appox. 35g)
  • 1 bottle of Oldfields Applefresco cider
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Piece of tin foil 40cm by 30cm
  • Piece of parchment paper 25cm by 25cm
  1. Prepare all of your vegetables and basil so that they are sliced nice and small.
  2. Place them in a bowl and add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, and a good twist of salt and pepper. Mix together.
  3. Lay out the piece of foil and lay the smaller parchment in the middle. Place the mixed vegetables in the centre of the paper and lay the fish on top and add a little extra seasoning to the fish.
  4. Fold the foil and parchment in half, and bring the ends together to cover over the fish. Turn in and fold the sides of the square, so that the sides are closed and the top is still open.
  5. Pour 60ml of the cider into the top and then seal the top of the parcel folding it over twice, checking that all the sides are secure.
  6. Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes on 200ºC/400ºF/Gas mark 6.
  7. Pull the tray out of the oven, and carefully cut a hole in the top to reveal your fish!
  8. Serve on a plate and enjoy with the rest of your Oldfields Applefresco cider!
