I love to enjoy fresh fish at home but sometimes it can be dry or stink up the house. To avoid dried out fish and a smelly fish odor, I bake it in foil packets.
Foil baking infuses the fish with the flavor while keeping it moist. Odor doesn’t stink up the kitchen because each fish is in a closed packet. This dish can come together in five minutes and
be on the dinner table in twenty-five minutes flat!
Add a simple salad, a starch, and viola – dinner is served!
Foil Baked Fish with Spinach and Garlic
olive oil for brushing
Any fish fillets 1 per serving (Cod, Haddock, Monk-fish, and Mahi have all worked well in this recipe)
The following ingredients are per piece of fish:
Foil sheet 12″ x 14″
Fresh baby spinach one generous handful
Tomato slices 3-5
Bottled minced garlic 1-2 tsp
Balsamic vinegar 1 Tbsp
Smoked sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
For each serving start with a piece of foil, and layer in this order:
Brush a thin layer of olive oil on the foil
Add a hand full of spinach
Place fish on spinach bed
Brush a thin layer of olive oil on fish
Top with tomato slices, minced garlic, salt & pepper and vinegar
Wrap fish securely and place foil packets on a baking sheet
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Thicker fish will take a little longer.
