Mullet In A Packet - (Triglie Al Cartoccio)

3 mullets - (1 lb ea) -- cleaned, scaled (or substitute snapper)
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
1/2 small butternut squash -- peeled, and cut into julienne
2 cardoon stalks -- cleaned, peeled, and cut into julienne
2 parsnips -- peeled, and cut into julienne
1 turnip -- peeled, and cut into julienne
6 Swiss chard leaves -- trimmed, and cut into ribbons
2 carrots -- peeled, and cut into julienne
6 branches oregano
1/4 cup finely-chopped Italian parsley
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup black olive paste
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.


Season each fish with salt and pepper, inside and out. Place 1 fish in the center of each of 3 large sheets of parchment paper. Top each fish with a handful of squash, cardoons, parsnips, turnips, Swiss chard, and carrots, 1 branch oregano, some of the parsley, some of the wine, a dollop of olive paste and a generous drizzle of the olive oil. Fold up each packet and seal the edges by folding them over several times.


Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, and serve hot, taking care of the steam that will blast from the hot packet.


This recipe yields 3 to 6 servings.
