Grouper with Tomato and Basil in a Foil PacketAugust 2, 2017
This delectable seafood dish is so easy! If grouper is hard to find, substitute any firm white fish for this quick, elegant dinner.
- Two 8-10 ounce Grouper filets (substitute sea bass, red snapper, or any other firm white fish filets)
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil
- 3 - 4 tablespoons Urban Accents Fisherman's Wharf
- 1/2 - 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
- fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
- 1/2 - 1 cup Kalamata olives chopped or halved (optional)
- 16 inch piece aluminum foil (one per filet)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Lightly coat tomato halves with olive oil and season liberally with Fisherman's Wharf Seasoning Blend. Set aside.
- Rinse fish filets and pat dry with paper towels. Lightly coat each filet with olive oil and season liberally with Fisherman's Wharf Blend.
- Place each filet on one aluminum foil sheet and cover with prepared tomatoes. Fold foil around the ingredients and seal into a packet to trap in steam.
- Place packets on a baking sheet. Place sheet in a 400 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove sheet from the oven and very carefully open packets to check for doneness. Tomato skins should be withered and wrinkly. Fish should be opaque and flake easily when tested with a fork. If the fish is not quite done, seal packets again and place them back into the oven for 3-5 more minutes. Do not overcook.
- When the fish is done, open packets and add prepared basil leaves and olives to taste. Transfer to a plate or serve directly in foil packet.
