I don’t know if it’s because there is more local fish available at this time, or because I prefer to eat a lighter meal during the summer months, but for whatever reason I tend to cook more fish now than any other time of the year.
If I am cooking a fish that is light in texture (or falls apart easily), I prefer to take the safe route and pan fry it.

Culinary parchment cooking bags make cooking fish (or vegetables) so much easier.
Some of the advantages to using parchment paper cooking bags include:
