I love fish. And the summer is just the perfect time to eat fish, right? It's too hot to really cook and it's too hot to eat a heavy meal. So what is light and filling and healthy and easy to cook? Fish!
I love tilapia, which has really grown in popularity recently because of it's reasonable price. It's the fish I use in my tacos.Read More
I figured out how to cook fish in aluminum foil when I was on a diet last year and constantly exhaused. I learned later my exhaustion was not my diet, I was pregnant. Ha ha!
Anyway, because this recipe was cheap, easy and healthy I began to make it a lot when I was pregnant. I was coming home from work late in the evening and I needed something that could be prepped and cooked in under 30 minutes.
This is very healthy, it has protien, fiber and all the minerals and nutrients associated with squash and zucchini like vitiamin C and magense. And it's so inexpensive I made mine with Tilapia and it costs about $1.90 per person or about $2.06 if you eat over rice.
What you'll need:
Four pieces of tilapia (or red fish or salmon)
Fresh or dried cilantro
**I have also put onion, oranges and lemon pepper. You can use pretty much anything. That's the beauty of this recipe.
Preheat your oven to 350 and let's get started.
Chop your veggies and make certain your fish is fully thawed.
Tear off four peices of foil. Place a piece of fish one each piece of foil. Sprinkle the fish with soy sauce and cilantro.
Cover each peice of fish with a healthy portion of the vegetables. Beleive me, two zuchini and two squash go a long way.
Fold the foil over the veggie and fish like a little envelope. Place all four foil packs on a baking sheet and place in the oven. You will need to cook it about 25 minutes.
