This post is another edition of a weeknight series which honestly couldn’t be any easier or faster but is absolutely delicious! This simple man`s plan to healthier eating today comes in the form of Weeknight Baked Fish in Foil with Kale, Asparagus & Tomato. No pots or pans to wash, 6 ingredients, 5 minutes of active time & 20 minutes of oven time & dinner will be on the table. Really, what more can you ask for. Well, you can & there`s more! This dish is super healthy, gluten & dairy free, low carb, low calorie & I`ll say again, ridiculously yummy! It`s also really versatile in the use of ingredients. Here I used Mahi Mahi but any firm fish will yield fantastic results. Same goes with the vegetables or herbs, use what you have on hand or prefer. The end game is moist flavorful fish & crisp tender veggies that`s perfect for busy hectic schedules but completely company worthy.
Here`s what you`ll need for your Weeknight Baked Fish in Foil with Kale, Asparagus & Tomato:
Fish Fillets- 4, 6-8oz`s (Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Halibut, Salmon, Cod, Wahoo etc. etc)
Kale- 6 cups roughly chopped, stems removed
Asparagus- 16-20 pieces, tough ends removed
Lemons-8 slices plus another to squeeze
Rosemary- 4 small sprigs (thyme, basil, sage, fennel, dill, oregano would all be beautiful as well)
S & P
.The stars of the show. You`re feeling healthier already right?Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Remove the tough stalks from the asparagus & stems from the kale.Lay out sheets of aluminum foil about 18 inches long. Places about 1 1/2 cups of kale in the center of each. Top with your fish & 4-5 asparagus spears. Scatter 8-10 tomatoes around.Season well with salt & pepper.Squeeze some lemon over the top & add a couple of slices to the filet.Add a sprig of rosemary or what ever herb you happen to be using.Fold the sides of the foil up & then the ends. Press or pinch to close the fish/veggie packets. Place in your preheated oven & bake about 20 minutes. The contents are going to steam inside the foil creating it`s own sauce to spoon over.Perfectly cooked & ready! There will be quite a bit of sauce so be careful when opening these bundles of yum. Now you have a choice. You can eat directly from the packets or remove to a plate. Either way you can`t lose.
I chose to plate mine because grandma was over. Be sure to spoon some of the sauce over the top!
Whatever you decide you`re going to enjoy your Weeknight Baked Fish in Foil with Kale, Asparagus & Tomato!!
