Halibut Provençal in Foil Packets is the easiest way to have a healthy and gourmet dinner on the table in no time at all!
1lb Halibut (or thick white fish)
1/2 Onion (thinly sliced)
1 Small Zucchini (Julienned)
1 Small Carrot (Julienned)
1 Medium Tomato (Thinly Sliced)
1 stick Butter
1 clove Garlic (Finely Minced)
Cut the halibut into two half pound pieces. Season with salt and pepper
Create a foil packet by folding a piece of foil in half (large enough to accommodate the fish, the vegetables and still have room at the edges). Bring up the sides slightly so any liquid doesn't run out.
Spray foil lightly with cooking spray. Place fish in packet.
Top with slices of zucchini, onion, tomato and carrots. Season vegetables lightly with salt and pepper and a few sprigs of thyme.
Once fish has been topped, make the compund butter. Soften the butter, then mix with finely minced garlic, mince thyme and a pinch of salt. Place a small pat of the butter on top of the fish, squeeze a dash of lemon juice over the top and seal the edges of the foil packet tightly together.
Place in a 400 degree oven for 15-18 minutes (or 8 minutes after you start to hear it sizzle in the foil packet). The fish is finished when it is opaque.
Remove foil packets from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle. Spoon fish and juice onto quinoa for a healthy and complete meal!
Who Am I?
Oh the difference a few years makes... Where once I was a professional event planner and fundraiser in beautiful Southern CA, now I am a full time SAHM in a gorgeous-in-it's-own-way, semi-rural cow town in Sonoma County. Hey at least they have wine, right?
