Cookalong with Frida and Ciana in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna, Sweden. We made Fish in a Package with Bulgur and vegetables.

Fish in a package with warm bulgur sallad


  • 500 g white fish (eg cod or haddock)
  • 1 zucchini [10-12 cm] (Frida and Ciana had Zucchini which I didn´t have. Use what you have!)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 bunch dill
  • 1 lime or lemon
  • flake salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  • 400 g bulgur
  • 2 lemons
  • 6 dl water + 1 1/2 tbsp fish or vegetable stock or 1 bouillon cube
  • aluminum foil


Divide the zucchini lengthwise and then slice it thinly.

Chop the bell peppers

Chop the onion

Roughly chop the tomatoes and finely chop the dill.

Mix together bulgur, zucchini slices, tomatoes, dill.

Peel 1 lemon and mix.

Salt and pepper.

Make 4 foil packages out of double sheets of aluminum foil put parchment paper inside.

Spread the couscous mixture in the packages.

Boil water and stock or bouillon cubes.

Add the juice of 1,5 lemons.

Cut the other half of the lemon into thin slices.

Divide the fish into 4 pieces.

Place a piece of fish on the couscous mixture in each foil package.

Place slices of lemon on top.

Fold the packages but keep one small opening for pouring in liquid

Place the packages in an oven pan.

Carefully pour in the broth and close the package tightly.

Bake at 200 degrees Celcius in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the couscous is ready and the fish well done.
