  • Feel free to use any fish fillet you like.
  • My husband prefers spicy, so for his fish parcels I add chili flakes, keep free to add any ingredients you prefer.
  • It’s better to cook veggies separately as every veggie takes different time and heat to cook, so cooking separately makes it easy.
