  1. Put a baking pan in the oven and heat it to 400°F. Take 4 sheets of aluminum foil (or parchment), each about 18 inches long, and put one piece on top of the other (you will make 4 packages). Rub a piece of fish with some of the olive oil, then season it with salt and pepper and center it on a piece of the foil. Sprinkle with tomato, garlic, and parsley and fold the foil over the fish, crimping the edges as tightly as possible. (To be sure there's no leakage, use double thickness to wrap fillets if you like.) Repeat the process. (You can refrigerate the packages until you're ready to cook, no more than 6 hours later.)

  2. Put the packages in the baking pan and bake for about 15 minutes (or about 8 minutes from the time it starts sizzling). Let sit for a couple of minutes before carefully cutting open the package-remove the fish and tomatoes with a spatula, pour the juices over all, and serve with lemon wedges.
