Roasting fish in packets (en papillote) allows it to steam in its own juices, intensifying its flavor. Substitute black bass or halibut if striped bass is unavailable.

This was wonderful. I omitted the mint and increased the artichokes and tomatoes. It was excellent. I had to increase the cooking time but it was worth the wait.
It's possible to make this on top of the stove in a skillet with a lid. Start by browning the artichokes and follow the directions through to adding the grape tomatoes, mint, salt and pepper. Nestle the seasoned fish down into the vegetables and cover, steaming just until the fish is barely done. I have substituted white wine for vermouth, parsley for mint, and cod for striped bass. It's always so good with a nutty brown-butter flavor from the original cooking of the artichokes. Wonderful!
Delicious! I used fresh halibut and followed the balance of recipe as described. Wonderful dinner - would be a good one for guests as you can make it all ahead and just put in oven upon arrival.
Made this with halibut and left the mint out, using a small amount of oregano. Very good!
