Ingredients
  • 4 (1 to 1 1/2-pound) sea breams, scaled and gutted, with head and tail intact
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup Gaeta olives
  • Special equipment: Parchment Paper
  • 1 lemon, sliced thin to yield 8 slices
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Season each fish on both sides and on the inside cavity with salt and pepper. Lay out 4 sheets of parchment paper (about 20 inches by 12 inches) and pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil on center of each sheet. Place one fish on each sheet of paper.

Divide the peppers, onion, carrots, and olives evenly among the 4 fish. Place 2 slices of lemon on the top of each fish. Pour 3 tablespoons of white wine over each fish.

Fold parchment in half and close the edge of the package to form a tight seal. Place the packages on a sheet tray and place in oven for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
