large carrot, peeled and cut into matchstick-thin strips (about 2/3 cup)
cup thinly sliced fresh sugar snap peas
of a medium yellow squash, cut into matchstick-thin strips (about 2/3 cup)
cherry tomatoes, cut in half
tablespoons minced shallot
cloves garlic, minced
tablespoon olive oil
cup minced fresh parsley
pinch kosher saltand ground black pepper to taste
(6 ounces each ) flounderfillets, about 1/2-inch thick
cup V8® V8® Low Sodium Spicy Hot
littleneck clams, scrubbed
Heat the oven to 425°F. Place the carrot, snap peas, squash, tomatoes, shallot and garlic in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and parsley and toss to coat. Season with the salt and black pepper.
Trim 4 (about 12-inch) parchment paper squares into heart shapes. Brush the parchment hearts with vegetable oil.
Place 1 fillet fish on the left side of each parchment heart. Season with the salt and black pepper. Divide the vegetable mixture among the fillets. Spoon 2 tablespoons vegetable juice over each. Place 4 clams around each fillet.
Fold the right side of each parchment heart in half over the filling. Fold 1/4 inch of the edges of the parchment paper over twice towards the center to seal and enclose the filling. Work from the tops of the hearts around to the points, twisting the points and tucking them under. Place the packets onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the clams open.
