Fish Baked in Lettuce Leaves

1 Head romaine lettuce
1 1/2 lb Fish fillets -- * see note
1 c Fresh parsley -- finely chopped
1 c Chopped onions
1 Carrot -- grated
1/2 c White wine
Black pepper -- to taste


* Use sole, flounder, or red snapper for this recipe. You will need 2 fillets of 3/4 pound each, and about 3/4-inch thick.

Remove and wash 8-10 large leaves from the romaine lettuce or use other green lettuce leaves. Line the bottom and sides of a baking dish with leaves, allowing the leaves to hang over edge of dish. Place 1 fillet into dish; cover with onion, carrot and parsley or chervil. Sprinkle with black pepper. Place the second fillet on top of the first. Fold the ends of the lettuce leaves over top fillet. Add wine to the dish. Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes in preheated 400-degree oven. Remove foil, fold back the lettuce leaves and serve immediately. Serve the lettuce leaves also if you wish.
