Instructions
  1. Place the fish in a single layer in the baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, garlic, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, the bay leaves and pepper and whisk to emulsify.
  3. Pour the marinade over the fish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the fish once.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  5. Cut 4 sheets of parchment paper or aluminium foil that are large enough to hold a single fish with a few inches margin when folded in half. Fold each one crosswise in half to mark the center, and then unfold. Brush each sheet with 1 tablespoon of the remaining olive oil.
  6. Remove the fish from the marinade and place 1 on 1 side of each piece of paper. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with olives, add some basil leaves and a bit of orange grated rind. Fold the paper over to enclose the fish and then fold the edges over all around, making a couple or triple fold to seal.
  7. Place the packages on 1 or 2 baking sheets and bake for 10 minutes, or until puffed.
  8. Transfer to serving plates. Slash the top of each package open with a sharp knife and serve immediately, with the orange wedges.
