P.S. I promise proper posts (soon!) despite the madness!

I have one too and its amazing and light...

preheat to 350
marinate bass steaks with olive oil salt and pepper
create a mixture of chopped up ginger, lime juice, lime zest, red onion (the more the better, of everythign actually) , a hint of red chile pepper,
place the steaks in parchment sheet
pour the mixture of lime juice extra over, add any veggies to be cooked with the fish in the parchment, finally add a sprig of cilantro on top of the fish. bake for 12-14 minutes....you can take it out to check, but it should cook fairly fast!
make one "packet" per serving, the fish will cook itself in all those juices and pick up all the flavors!
serve in the paper for the dramatic look.

Thanks for the comments, girls! I will have to try these. I also got one more from Vince's mom via email. It's awesome and I quote: "It's Quick...It's Easy....and a short list of ingredients....
