As someone who is constantly cleaning her kitchen, I really appreciate meals that require minimal cleanup or don't use a lot of dishes. One-pot meals are a great option, but even that leaves me with a dish to clean up. That's where parchment paper becomes my best friend. Cooking in parchment paper, or en papillote, is a simple, fast, and healthy technique. It works particularly well with mild white fish like cod.
I don't really have much experience cooking with fish, but I figured it'd be hard to go wrong with ingredients like Spring onion, asparagus, basil, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. This Spring meal is so easily put together by preparing the vegetables and layering everything on a sheet of parchment paper.

In this flavorful dish, two types of seafood — firm white fish and briny shellfish — are combined, creating a sophisticated meal that is surprisingly uncomplicated to make.
If your local market does not have cod or cockles, consider using another affordable flaky white fish, like halibut, and small clams in place of the cockles.
This dinner of cod wrapped in cured Italian ham looks both light and filling at the same time. Since white fish tend to be mild in taste, I'm looking forward to the boost of flavor that paper-thin prosciutto will provide.
