If you struggle with cooking fish that’s tender, you will love making lemon vegetable fish packets! They turn out perfect every time and the flavors of garlic, lemon and seasonings are incredible. Plus, you can use either foil or parchment and both are super easy clean up!
Just one of many Quick Healthy Recipes you’ll find here!
The first time I made fish packets I was so surprised how wonderful the fish turned out – evenly cooked and tender.
To be honest, I didn’t try cooking fish this way for the longest time because I thought it was such a waste of foil or parchment, whichever was used.
If you can easily cook it regularly (grill, oven or pan), why add a whole other layer?
Why Make Fish Packets with Foil or Parchment?
Here’s what I discovered:
Cooking fish in foil or parchment results in perfectly moist fish that’s bathed in seasonings right along with veggies. There are no overdone or underdone areas and the flavors always mingle just right.
Here are a few other reasons I’ve come to love cooking fish in foil, too:
- You can make them in advance and keep them in the fridge until they’re ready to grill or bake. This is great for those days when you have time in the morning, but the afternoon will be busy and perfect for easy entertaining.
- Cooking the vegetables along with the fish makes for almost a one-dish meal. I usually add a salad or cut up vegetables and bread, but you don’t have to.
- The clean up is a breeze!
So while I don’t cook fish in packets all the time, it’s become my go-to for days I need an easy, healthy meal that can be ready when we are.
And our family’s favorite is this combo of white fish, seasonal vegetables, lemon, garlic, and butter – they are SO good. The fish almost melts in your mouth.
In the summer we grill the packets and in the winter it’s easy to bake the fish packets in the oven.
If you haven’t tried cooking fish packets before, I think you will love them as much as I do now, too!
