Many of us have entered upon the season of Lent, a time when we give something up, usually food of some sort, for six weeks. “Many Roman Catholics, abstain only from meat (mammals and fowl) on Ash Wednesday and every Friday for the duration of Lent: fish and dairy products are still allowed. For many people that means gorging on pasta and cookies while giving up meat, but don’t do it! There are thousands of incredible fish and dairy recipes out there that will delight your taste buds to no end!This is one of my favorites and it is super easy to make – and there is almost NO CLEANUP! In my book that makes it pure divinity!
- White fish – halibut is awesome, but expensive so try Mahi Mahi, perch, orange roughy or any other white fish. Get about 3-5 oz. per adult and 2-3 oz per child.
- veggies – zucchini, squash, bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli – basically anything in season that sounds good.
- sweet potatoes and/or blue potatoes. Sweet potatoes are healthier, but blue potatoes are oh, so pretty! Slice these very thinly!
- salt, pepper, curry powder (or what ever form you get your curry seasoning) and coconut milk.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Take 2 long sheets of tin foil and make an X with them. Put your fish in the center. I like to make one foil packet per serving.
Sprinkle fish with spices and coconut milk
Throw a whole bunch of sliced, shredded or diced veggies on top. Add cilantro.
Add some very thinly sliced potatoes of your choice.
Sprinkle again with spices – I like to go heavy on the curry. Cover with coconut milk.
Seal the top foil packet first – long ends together then crimp the sides.
Then do the same with the bottom foil packet.
Then you can either throw it in the fridge until its time to cook, or throw it in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Fish is done when opaque. Enjoy!
