I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account. Last summer, I prepared this recipe with a few changes (as stated in the comment section below) and really enjoyed it.

I fixed this using catfish and butter and it was fabulous. It's almost a sin to be able to fix something so fast and easy and then taste that great. Thanks for posting this. A repeater for sure.

Simple to prepare, delicious, healthy, and minimal clean-up? JOY!!!

I made very minor deviations from the recipe: combo of butter and evoo; lime juice; dried parsley and dill, added some granulated garlic. (Can you tell it was hot and I didn't want to go to the market?) As others suggested, I put the oil/butter on first, then sprinkled on the other ingredients (just eyeballing amounts).

I put the packets on a cold gas grill, then turned it on high for 6 minutes, after which I turned off the heat but didn't open the cover for another 6 minutes. (No preheating and no turning the packets.) My 1/2-lb. swai fillets were done to perfection. The liquid from the packets was wonderful over brown jasmine rice.
