  • 1 tbsp malt vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 8 sprigs of saffron


  • 1 lb fresh cod fillets
  • 3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup cauliflower (broken into flowerettes)
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 3 tsp malt vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic (cut into slices)
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced potatoes (pre-cooked)


  • Add all marinate ingredients (except saffron) in a baking dish. Cut fish into 3 equal portions. (approximately 5 oz each) Place fish in marinate mixture. Break up the sprigs of saffron and sprinkle a dash of saffron on top of each fillet. WARNING: Saffron is a very potent spice. If you use too much, you CANNOT go back. Let fish marinate for an hour.
  • Arrange a sheet of aluminum foil on flat surface. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper. Add one third of cooked potatoes. Top potatoes with 1 tsp of malt vinegar. Place cut cod fillet next to the potatoes. Top fish with 1 tsp of lemon juice. Arrange one third of cauliflower flowerettes and one third of snap peas on top of potatoes. Drizzle olive oil on top of the whole contents. Top with two lemon slices.
  • Fold parchment paper so it forms a partially sealed packet. Fold aluminum foil so it forms a tight seal. Repeat this process with other two pieces of cod. You will end up with three packets.

    1. Fish, saffron and en papillote. What could be better? Nothing I say. My dinner guests made me cook a second batch that night. I added a little Parmesan cheese on the second batch.

    1. Thanks Nancy. Funny story – The first I used saffron I WAAAYYY overspiced. It was the grossest piece of salmon I ever made. I had to throw it out. ?
