My Plate in a Pouch

Start with a piece of foil.  Add a fish fillet, then top with vegetables, herbs and a citrus slice--and bake.  The result is a delicious dinner in 1/2 an hourHere's what went into our pouches (though the choice of seafood and vegetables is up to you!)

Cod in Foil with Vegetables & Herbs

(Serves 2)

Like wrapping a package, cut 2 pieces of foil larger than the fillet.  Place each fillet in center of foil piece.  (I used parchment lined foil).
2 wild cod fillets (4-5 ounce each)

Grind seeds in spice mill.  Sprinkle fish with ground spices.
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/8 teaspoon coriander seeds

Cook corn.  (I microwave the corn in the trimmed husk in a wet paper towel, 2 minutes per side)
1 ear of corn
Remove husks and silk.  Cut corn from cob.  Divide among the pouches.

Top with remaining vegetables and herbs.  Place orange slice on top.
1 small patty pan squash, halved and sliced thin
2 baby bella mushrooms, sliced
4 fresh broccoli spears, trimmed
1 shallot bulb, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 thyme steams
2 slices oranges

Fold up package.  Bake in 400 F. oven for 15 minutes.  I drained some of the liquid before sliding contents of package onto plate.  

Our meal was served with a side salad of spinach, black olives, tomatoes and mozzarella.
