- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 fish fillets (tilapia, salmon, cod, etc.)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced into 8 pieces
- Cut four pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil, about 15 inches long (if using regular aluminum foil, double it).
- Divide onions and green beans between the foil pieces, layering onions on top and green beans next.
- Drizzle olive oil on vegetables and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Layer a fish fillet on top of each vegetable pile. Combine butter, garlic, salt, pepper, and optional red pepper flakes and spoon over fish, dividing evenly.
- Top each pile of fish and vegetables with two thin slices of lemon and wrap foil around ingredients, folding edges to seal well.
- To Grill: Preheat grill to medium high and place packets directly on grill. Close cover and cook 1/2-inch fillets about 15 minutes (until fish flakes easily with a fork). Cook thicker fillets longer as needed.
- To Bake: Place packets on a baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, until done.
- Carefully unwrap packets, being careful of steam and serve in the packets on individual plates.
You can substitute green beans with: asparagus, thinly sliced carrots, sliced sweet peppers, chopped cabbage, or kale (or anything you think would be good!).
