Cut the zucchini, onion, carrots, cherry tomatoes, garlic and potatoes into cubes and roast them briefly on olive oil 5 to 10 minutes or until they soften. Put the vegetables and then the fish on the baking paper. Lightly drizzle olive oil and fish stock over the vegetables and fish and tie the paper with a cooking twine into a shape of a “gift”. Put the paper bag in a preheated oven and bake at 180°C for 15 minutes. Open the baked sea bream in front of guests.
 
Note
This method of preparation is also great for preparing fish fillets. Instead of baking paper, you can use the aluminum foil which is easier for creating the paper bag shape. You can serve dry white wine with the meal.
