Happy St. Patty’s Day!! Today, I have a fish in foil recipe for you with a little bit of green 😉
I rarely cook fish in a foil packet or parchment paper because it doesn’t get crispy. But, what I discovered is that it becomes super moist and packed with flavor. It looks fancy and pretty, but is one of the most simple fish recipes to make.
I followed this tilapia recipe from Key Ingredient, except I used green beans instead of asparagus for the vegetable. The other key ingredients I used were shallots, thyme, and lemon slices. It turned out like a gourmet meal! And it was nice and light.
Here is how to lay out the foil with fish and ingredients on top:
Wrap them up tightly and place on a baking sheet. It makes for easy clean-up!!
You can use parchment paper as well for a more natural choice. The parchment may fall apart a little more easily, however.
Then, Mr. Cyclist made some homemade french onion soup to go with it!
It felt like a gourmet dinner! But, the fish recipe was so easy, and clean-up is a breeze. This is also a perfect recipe for just one person to make a single serving.
