Ingredients

  • 1/2

    pound medium-sized asparagus tips only

  • 1

    cup green beans cut 1" lengths

  • 1

    cup fresh green peas

  • 1

    hothouse cucumber peeled

  • 4

    flounder fillets - (abt 6 oz ea)

  • 4

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 4

    teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    lemons halved

Directions

In boiling water, blanch the asparagus for 1 minute and the green beans and peas for 2 minutes. Run under cold water and drain well. With the small side of a melon baller, cut enough balls from the cucumber to measure 1 cup. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Have 4 sheets of foil ready, each 22 by 12 inches. Lay 1 sheet in front of you lengthwise, on a flat work surface. Center a flounder fillet on the bottom half of the foil (turning up the edges slightly so the vegetables won't roll off). Arrange 1/4 of the asparagus, green beans, peas and cucumber balls around the fish. Dot the fish and vegetables with 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon dill. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the top half of the foil over the fish and vegetables; crimp the edges together carefully to create a packet. Repeat with the other 3 fillets. Transfer packets to a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Transfer packets to dinner plates and allow the guests to open them at the table. Serve each with a lemon half. This recipe yields 4 servings.
