Cod en papillote with grilled potatoes


For the potatoes

  • Preheat the barbecue to high heat.
  • Cut the potatoes into lengthwise slices, leaving a 1 cm border from their bottom. You should not cut the slices all the way down as you do not want them separated.
  • Brush the potatoes with olive oil, season them with salt and pepper, and wrap each potato with a piece of aluminum foil.
  • Put the potatoes on the barbecue and grill them for 30-40 minutes, on a high rack until they are tender, flipping them over regularly. The cooking time depends on the size of each potato. If you do not have a rack, you should lower the heat a little while grilling the potatoes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the heat and remove the aluminum foil.

For the cod

  • Cut the garlic into slices.
  • In a bowl mix the olive oil, the juice of the lemons, and the garlic to make the marinade.
  • Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper, and pour the marinade over them.
  • Cut 4 pieces of parchment paper, 25-30 cm each, and spread them on your working surface, one next to the other.
  • Place one fillet at the center of each parchment piece, along with the marinade, and spread the thyme on top of the fillets.
  • Fold the edges of the parchment and wrap each one like a candy.
  • Transfer the parchment pieces onto the grilling surface of the barbecue and grill the cod for about 10-15 minutes, flipping the pouches halfway through the cooking time.
  • Remove from the heat, open the pouches, sprinkle with thyme and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Serve the cod with the grilled potatoes.


If you do not have a barbecue, you can bake the cod in the oven for 20 minutes at 180οC (350ο F) set to fan, and the potatoes for 40-50 minutes.
