The Fish Friday Foodies are serving up Seafood Foil Packets today.......

Sue of Palatable Pastime is hosting and asked us to "Post a recipe for seafood foil packets. Any type seafood (fish, shellfish, etc.) On the grill or however you like to do it. Seafood by itself or perhaps with vegetables or however you like it. Let your creativity flow!"

Let's see what everyone is sharing......

  • Karen's Kitchen Stories: Fish Foil Packets with Cod, Chipotles, Black Beans, and Corn

  • Alaskan Rockfish Packages

    Our friend, Steve, had gone on a fishing trip in Alaska and had great success catching both Halibut and Rockfish.  The charter, quickly cleaned and flash froze his bounty and shipped it home.  He generously shared some of each with us.

    I had never even heard of Rockfish before but Steve told me that it was a meaty, tender, whitefish.  The fillets looked lovely so I knew I wanted to let the fish be the star of the meal.  When Sue announced this event, I remembered those Rockfish Fillets in my freezer.-

    I sliced potatoes very thinly with my mandolin so that they would cook at the same time as the fish.  Should you not be able to slice them thinly enough, just give them a quick boil or zap in the microwave and partially cook before tossing with oil and seasonings and laying them onto the foil as a bed for the fish.

    I somehow skipped sharing my Weekly Menu last week.  Time got away from me but we did eat each day LOL.  And we will eat each day this week as well.  Here is my menu........
