Jovina cooks: Easy fish and vegetable foil parcels

Fish and Veggie Grilled Packets

Until I started cooking fish on the grill with this method, I never realized how delicious and moist the fish would taste.
4 servings
Ingredients
16 oz Mahi Mahi fish fillets, about 1/2 inch thick and cut into 4 equal pieces
8 extra-large shrimp, cleaned and peeled
4 large sea scallops
4 fresh thyme sprigs
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 small red onion, cut into eighths
2 bell peppers, each cut into 12 thin slices
12 grape tomatoes, cut in half
Paprika, salt and pepper
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Extra-virgin olive oil

 

Directions
Preheat grill to medium.
To make the packets: lay two 18-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil on top of each other (the double layers will help protect the contents from burning); generously coat the top piece with olive oil cooking spray. Repeat with six more pieces of foil.
Divide the onions and bell pepper equally on bottom of the 4 pieces of heavy-duty foil.
Place a piece of fish on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, Add 2 shrimp and 1 scallop to each packet.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add tomatoes, garlic and chives to each packet.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Bring the short ends of the foil together, leaving enough room in the packet for steam to gather and cook the food.
Fold the foil over and pinch to seal. Pinch seams together along the sides. Make sure all the seams are tightly sealed to keep steam from escaping.
Grill the packets until the fish is cooked through and the vegetables are just tender, about 15 minutes.
To serve, carefully open both ends of the packets and allow the steam to escape. Use a spatula to slide the contents onto plates. Serve with the lemon sauce.

Lemon Sauce
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Dash or two of hot sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Directions
Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat on the grill or on the stove. Serve with the fish packet.
