Tonight for dinner I did a little experiment and made fish in foil packets:
You’ll have to trust me on the foil; I didn’t want to plop a big old mess down on the plates.
So here’s the general recipe I used. I kind of winged it, so measurements are approximate:
3 T soy sauce
2 T maple syrup or brown sugar
1 T rice wine vineger
1 inch chunk of ginger, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
6 – 7 mushrooms, sliced
6 – 7 asparagus spears, sliced
2 scallions, chopped
6 – 7 broccoli florets
Handful or two of mung bean sprouts
2 fish fillets, like cod or halibut
Mix soy sauce, maple syrup and vinegar. Use two pieces of tin foil for each packet, in a plus sign shape. Put vegetables, ginger and garlic on, then fish, then top with half the sauce mixture. Fold up the sides so no steam escapes and bake at 375º. The amount of time depends on what kind of fish you use; mine took about 20 minutes. Makes two servings.
The fish I used was orange roughy, which is basically the only thing Trader Joe’s had last week…HOWEVER I found out later that it is not sustainable so I would not buy this again. I didn’t even really like the taste of it, so I gave most of it to Chris. I’m hoping he also gets the bad karma.
I also made fake “fried” rice using brown rice, carrots, scallions, some leftover mung bean sprouts, garlic, soy sauce, and a little sesame oil. Good stuff.
And, I had a ice cream sandwich. I took a picture, but it pretty terrible so I’m going to spare you this time.
