Cod in Parchment Paper

My husband and I are heading out of town for a week long vacation, so deciding what to make for dinner was tough. I don't want to make anything that leave leftovers, and I didn't want take out, I wanted something light. Thanks to Silvia from and her recipe for Suffocated Cod I got the idea to make Cod which is a plenty in South eastern Mass where I live. I of course didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I had to change things up quite a bit. My hubby doesn't like curry and I didn't have coconut milk. I also served the zucchini on the side simply steamed. Even with the changes it was delicious!!
