Simple Whitefish With Lemon and Herbs

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Kree6528

I can't believe something this simple can taste this good. This was actually my very first time making fish, and it turned out absolutely fabulous! This is another recipe from my favorite cookbook, Eating for IBS by Heather Van Vorous. I actually didn't have any rosemary, so I made it with basil and oregano. Try it with your favorite fresh or dried herbs!

I used fresh white fish filets. I made a sauce of butter, minced garlic,white wine,fresh chopped garden herbs of lemon basil and tarragon, and fresh grated lemon zest. Cooked it down a bit then poured it over the fish and topped the filets with capers and sealed the foil packets. Cooked about 18min on the grill. My guests said it was the best white fish ever.
