White fish fillets baked in a parcel of squash, zucchini and olives, finished with a dollop of cheesy basil sauce and served with crusty bread.

No Fish option - replacement is chicken schnitzels.

Gluten friendly option - bread is replaced with GF bread.
1. Set oven to 180ºC. 
Slice zucchini and squash into even-sized pieces. Halve cherry tomatoes. Toss with olives, 1 tsp oregano and 1 tbsp olive oil. Tear 4 sheets of baking paper and divide even amounts of vegetables on top.

2. Season fish with salt and pepper. Lay over vegetables and top each fillet with 1/2 tbsp butter.

3. To wrap the parcels, bring long sides of the paper together, fold over twice and tuck short sides underneath. Place on an oven tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.

4. Use a stick mixer or small food processor to blend basil leaves, 1/3 cup grated parmesan, 1 crushed garlic clove 2 tsp vinegar and 1/4 cup olive oil.

5. Slice bread loaf and toast in oven for 5 minutes.

6. Serve parcels with a dollop of pistou, lemon wedges and crusty bread.
