Herbed Fish Wrapped in Greens

I’m always in need of a rather simple recipe that is easy and quick when I have guests coming over that provided me with minimal time in the kitchen and more time to enjoy my guests. Here’s a simple recipe for white fish that does just that, and pairs well with the softer varieties of red wine such as pinot noir, blue franc, and bolder whites such as chardonnay and pinot gris!

Bon Appitite!



  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mixed fresh tarragon and/or parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 4 6-ounce white fish fillets, such as flounder, sole or tilapia
  • 4 large leaves of Green leafy Vegetables such as Swiss Chard, kale, or even lettuce
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in middle.

    Mash together butter, herbs, and shallots. Spread 1 Tbsp butter mixture on bottom of a 1 1/2-quart shallow baking dish.

    In a pan of steeping water, quickly shock the Large Leaf of Swiss Chard, or other leafy green vegetable just to make it more pliable.

    Season fish with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper Divide remaining butter mixture and spread on fillet, then roll up. Place 1 fillet on large Swiss Chard leafy green vegetable then tuck leaf around fish to enclose fish and place in baking dish. Cover dish tightly with foil and bake until fish is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
