Don't remember where I found this, but it is not original. Make in foil so there is nothing to clean up!
- 1 lb white fish fillet
- 1 lime, sliced
- 1 small onion, sliced thin
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 dash cumin
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- Place fish in the middle of a double layer of heavy foil.
- Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with all other seasonings.
- Fold up foil edges and seal well.
- Place on grill (hot coals) or broil for 15-20 minutes.
I'm not rating this because it was a disaster for me -- but I didn't exactly follow the recipe, so it's probably my fault. I used cod fillets, and followed the recipe except for baking it at 375. (No access to a BBQ or decent broiler.) At the end of 30 minutes it wasn't even remotely cooked; I kept checking every ten minutes, but it took nearly 45 minutes to cook, which killed the texture of the fish. If I ever get a BBQ, or a decent stove with a decent broiler, I'll try it again -- but I won't try it again as a baked dish.
I think I am cursed when it comes to cooking fish so it very well could have been my fault but this one didn't really work out for us. It didn't taste bad but there was nothing memorable about it. Sorry
This meal is a great way to help lose those 4 pounds you spend 4 weeks sweating to get rid of, then when you spend months on the scale hovering over the same number, then you go do something as stupid as binge-eating over the weekend and gain 4 pounds in 4 days. At this point you decide you will (without any guilt) prepare a dish named: Fragrant Fish Fillets in Foil (FABULOUS) =))) Yum.
