                                          • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
                                          • Preheat oven to 400 °F.
                                          • Cut parchment paper into 8” x 12” squares. Fold each square in half.
                                            For 25 servings, cut 25 pieces.
                                            For 50 servings, cut 50 pieces.
                                          • In the center, next to the folded seam, place 1 piece of fish. Wash hands after touching uncooked fish.
                                          • Place margarine in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until completely melted.
                                          • Add garlic and herb seasoning to melted margarine.
                                          • In an extra-large bowl, combine vegetables and seasoned margarine. Toss to mix.
                                          • Place ½ cup of seasoned vegetables on top of each piece of fish.
                                          • Roll and then fold the edges of the parchment paper together to create a packet.
                                          • Place fish packets on a sheet pan (18” x 26” x 1”). Place sheet pan in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes. Heat to an internal temperature of 145 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds. Remove from the oven.
                                            For 25 servings, use 1 pan.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                          • Serve 1 packet. Serve immediately, or keep warm at 140 °F or higher (see notes).

                                          Notes

                                          • Contains fish (flounder). Margarine can be a hidden source of common
                                            allergens, which include milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy,
                                            wheat, and sesame.
                                          • Open packets to release steam before serving to prevent burning.
                                          • Can use tilapia, pollock, catfish, grouper, haddock, cod, halibut, rockfish, sole,
                                            or bass instead of flounder.
