Fish In Foil™

This is perfect for summer or anytime.

I used a broiler, but this is also great on the grill. I've also used salmon but you can use what fish you prefer.


4 salmon fillets
1/4 c. dry white wine
1 c. each: bell pepper, onions, tomatoes chopped
1 - 2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper, dried or fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Lemon zest
1/2 c. green onions
1/8 c. olive oil


Remove fish from freezer and thaw if needed.

Preheat broiler or grill. 

Cut enough aluminum foil into 4 rectangles, to envelope fish and vegetables. 

Peel, rinse, chop, onion and garlic.

Rinse, seed, chop pepper.

Rinse, chop tomatoes and green onions. 

Place fish on the foil pieces. 

Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper, add vegetables, garlic and parsley.

Drizzle a little oil over fish and veggies.

Fold foil so that nothing falls out of packets. Before sealing packets, add wine and squeeze lemon over fish. 

Seal packets so that nothing falls out and place on a baking sheet.  Place baking sheet in oven and broil for 12 - 15 min or until done. 

 Remove packets from broiler or grill. 

Be careful, they're hot, let cool a few minutes before serving. 

Open and enjoy.


Serves 4.
