Here’s a very healthy dish that can be made on the dinner table within 30 minutes. The fish steams in the pouches and ends up moist and flavorful. You can cook these pouches in the oven or directly on a grill. Here is what you are going to need for this:
Serves four – two pouches of two fish each
1 large white onion – sliced
4 tomatoes – thickly sliced
20 parsley sprigs – washed
4 TBS olive oil
4 fish fillets – I used Basa
1 TBS mayonnaise
1 lime or lemon – juiced
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread out a large piece of aluminum foil on the kitchen counter. Layer ¼ of the onion slices on the bottom, top with ¼ of the tomato slices and ¼ of the parsley sprigs. Add some salt and pepper and drizzle 2 TBS olive oil on vegetables. Place 2 fish fillets on the vegetables and add ½ of the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper again and spread ¼ TBS mayonnaise on each one. Top the fish with ¼ of the onion slices, ¼ of the tomato slices and ¼ of the parsley sprigs. Grab the edges of the foil and seal them at the top – forming a tent. Seal the sides as well. Repeat the process with the second pouch.
Place the fish in the oven and cook between 25 to 30 minutes. Carefully remove the pouch – do not burn yourself – and let it cool down a bit. Open the top – very careful not to burn with the steam – and check if the fish is done. If it is not, seal it again and return it to the oven for a few more minutes.
Serve the fish with onion and tomato. Enjoy!
