This is an old method of cooking fish. In French they call it "en papillote." Try blanching some leeks, and putting them under the fish before cooking it. When I do this at my restaurant, I brush the paper with either an egg wash or butter (so the paper will brown), and I present it in the paper. The server cuts the pouch open tableside, so that the vapours can be savoured by the diner. Just thought you might want to know. :-)
