If you've used parchment paper and you've sealed it perfectly, the packet will not only brown attractively but also puff up a bit in the oven. Don't fret if this doesn't happen—the fish will still be delicious. You can serve the packets at the table (transferring the packets to plates first!) and let everyone open theirs up, or, if you used tin foil or don't want a bunch of damp parchment paper at the table, you can unwrap the fish in the kitchen and serve it (pictured here with rice and an arugula salad) as long as you do so immediately and fairly quickly so the fish is still hot and fragrant with whatever you've seasoned it with. Be sure to pour any juices in the packets back onto the fish.
