Preheat oven to 400°.

Cut 4 (18-inch-long) pieces of parchment paper. Spoon corn and zucchini evenly onto center of each piece. Top evenly with asparagus, placing spears lengthwise on paper. Place fillets lengthwise over asparagus; top evenly with lemon slices. Place tomatoes around edges. Drizzle each serving with 1 teaspoon butter; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.
