The cartoccio is a way of thermal processing in a paper bag, where the main purpose is creating steam and preserving the moisture in the food. It also preserves the intensity of the aromas and the taste of the food. A dish al cartoccio must be opened at the table so that the lovely aromas of the dish are released in front of you at the right time.

  • 1 Drip lemon juice and sprinkle a tablespoon of Vegeta onto the fish fillets. Prepare a baking pouch out of baking paper.
  • 2 Smear the paper with olive oil, place the fillets on the paper and cover them with onion rings and lemon zest. Put some olive oil on top and close the pouches. Place them on a baking tin and put them in a preheated oven at 220°C for 10 minutes.
