Fish in a Foil

Looking to make a quick meal with minimal dishes to wash? How about making fish in a foil.

Just as the name suggests, fish is baked in a foil.

I made this some time last week. I have been trying to work on healthier recipes for the blog.

Take your aluminium foil, cut a size enough to make a pocket to hold a fish fillet. Grease with some little olive oil.

Make a bed for the fillet with some slices of onion, I used some yellow onion slices.

Since I was making four fish fillets, I used different seasoning for each fillet. Another great advantage of this recipe, you can serve up different flavours without much hassle.

I added some rosemary leaves for this fillet.

Lay the fish fillet on the bed.

Season the fillet with salt and black pepper. Then fold over the other side of the foil to make a package of sorts. Fold over the sides to seal the package.


Repeat the above procedures for the all the fillets you intend to use.

I topped this one with some ground coriander and of course salt and pepper.

On another I used paprika and the final one I simply used rosemary leaves with salt and black pepper.

Remember to preheat your oven.

Bake the fish for 20 minutes at 180°C.

I placed all the fish packages on my oven tray and then baked them.

Once cooked, serve and top off with the onions that acted as the bed.
