  2. Cut 2 large heart-shaped pieces of parchment paper and spray cooking spray on a baking sheet.
  3. Fold the parchment in half down the middle and place a fillet on one side against the folded crease.
  4. Drizzle each fillet with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and top with cut vegetables, citrus slices, and fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Fold the other side of the heart-shaped paper. Fold and crimp the rounded edge first and continue folding and crimping until the whole pocket is tightly closed.
  6. Place fillet pockets on the baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
