Halibut in Chard Leaves with Lemon-Thyme Butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
4 very large Swiss chard leaves, halved lengthwise, center stems cut out
4 halibut portions (each 6 to 8 ounces)
4 lemon slices
Preheat oven to 450°F. Blend butter, fresh lemon juice, chopped fresh thyme, chopped fresh chives, and grated lemon peel in small bowl; season butter to taste with salt and pepper.
Place four 12-inch squares of foil on work surface. Overlap center edge of 2 chard halves on each square. Sprinkle portions on each side with salt and pepper and then spread with some lemon-thyme butter. Top each with lemon slice. Place 1 portion crosswise on widest part of chard. Fold bottom of leaf over portion, then continue to roll up (sides will be open). Enclose each wrapped portion in foil. Arrange packets on rimmed baking sheet. Bake until fish is just opaque in center, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer packets to plates, open foil, and serve.
