Great for thin fish fillets

Top Review by woodland hues

Made this tonight along with nugget potatoes and a Greek salad, and it was VERY good! Used our electric grill, and blue cod was my choice of fish. I wasn't too sure about the boat thing..I placed a strip of parchment paper on top of the aluminum foil I was using and put the fish on that, simply wrapping it up tightly to prevent leakage. Bottom line: this was a really tasty meal! 3 months later --- I love preparing fish fillets this way, and use this recipe often. Photo shows basa fillet accompanied by garlic and parsley orzo and sauteed rutabaga and carrot. Now that the outdoor grill is put away for the winter, the oven works just as well..done in about 20 mins. Thanks again.
