Baking everything in these little parcels allows the flavours to infuse into the fish and veggies and stops the fish drying out.

Instructions

  1. Process coriander, parsley, juice, spice mix, 1 tablespoon water, garlic and chilli in a food processer until almost smooth. Transfer chermoula to a shallow dish. Add fish and turn to coat.
  2. Cut four 30cm squares of foil and four 30cm squares of baking paper. Place 1 piece baking paper on top of each piece of foil. Place lemon, onion, zucchini, chickpeas and fish in centre of baking paper squares. Fold baking paper, then foil, to enclose filling.
