Herby cod en papillote

“En papillote” means cooking in a bag to lock moisture in and create a steam-cooking effect – ideal for delicate ingredients like white fish.

Serves 1, per serving: 116 kcal, 27g protein, 1g carbs, 1g fat, 0g fibre


  • 150g cod fillet
  • 1 tbsp hot stock (from LighterLife Savoury Broth)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried herbs e.g. parsley
  • Ground black pepper



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6.
  2. Place the cod on a sheet of foil, sprinkle with the stock and herbs, and season. Wrap the foil securely around the fish, leaving a small space between it and the top of the foil, to create the “papillote” (bag).
  3. Place on a baking tray and bake for 12-15 mins, until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.



  • You can use greaseproof paper or plastic oven bags in place of foil.
  • Plaice with tarragon is a tasty alternative.
