Helpful hints

  • For a visual on how to fold parchment paper, click here.
  • Use foil if parchment paper is unavailable.
  • Forty fresh snap beans is equal to 2 cups, if cut into 2” pieces.
  • Parboil means to cook partially by boiling for a brief period.
  • Any vegetable can be used in place of snap beans, such as: julienne yellow squash, zucchini, carrots, snow peas, etc.  Thicker, tougher vegetables such as snap beans and snow peas need to be parboiled before steaming with fish to ensure doneness. Softer vegetables, including squash, can be substituted without parboiling.
  • Sole is also known as flounder. Substitutes include halibut and cod; both are just as delicious.
  • If available, substitute 1/2 tablespoon fresh basil for dried basil. For optimal flavor add it immediately after opening parchment instead of before baking the fish.
