Fish in a Packet

No recipe image available.Fish steamed in its own juice is a good thing. Use parchment paper instead of foil for a more elegant presentation.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup julienned seeded green bell pepper
1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Place each flounder fillet on a separate piece of aluminum foil that's large enough to enclose the fish. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Divide green bell pepper and onion evenly between fish and place a pat of butter on top. Fold aluminum foil over fish and vegetables and crimp edges to secure.
  3. Place in a shallow baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes, or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately in foil packets so that the diners get a blast of savory aroma when they open them at the table.

Makes 4 servings.
