Mediterranean Fish

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I didn't get around to meal planning this week, but wanted to share an amazing dish I came up with last week. This recipe was inspired by a couple of recipes I found online. We had a couple of fish fillets left over from another meal, and I had heard about how easy it was to make fish using foil packets.

I am not a huge fish person, and don't really care for the fishy taste, so I wanted something with a lot of flavor that would help offset that fishy taste. This recipe was a total winner. Between the tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, it really provides a lot of flavor. I served over brown rice, which also helped to soak up the juices. Rick was pretty impressed, and I decided that I really do like fish :) Double win!!

Meanwhile, mix the drained tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and red pepper flakes in a bowl and then pour half of mixture over each fish fillet. Wrap foil up around each fish to make a little packet.
Place baking sheet with foil packets in a 400 degree oven for 25 mins. Serve over brown rice and garnish with a little fresh basil. Then enjoy!
