Crown City Cooking | Fish in a Pouch
This recipe is virtually idiot proof… just make sure you don’t touch the stove!
- A chunk of fish (dealer’s choice. I prefer skinless Alaskan salmon)
- Vegetables (dealer’s choice)
- Olive oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Aluminum Foil
- Take a large enough piece of aluminum foil and curl it together to make a pouch.
- Drizzle the olive oil in the foil to help keep the fish from sticking.
- Place the chunk of fish inside the foil. If there is skin on one side of your fish, place the chunk skin side down. Optionally, you could marinate your fish in a variety of sauces for an hour prior to cooking.
- Scatter the vegetables in the pouch followed by a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Close the pouch making sure there are no openings.
- Put the pouch in a frying pan and cook on medium heat for ten minutes.
- Carefully open and remove the food from the pouch, avoiding any plumes of steam.
With the various combinations you could create using this recipe, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I ended up making. This is skinless Alaskan salmon that I marinated for several minutes in teriyaki sauce with sliced mushrooms. It held a little of the marinade’s flavor but not much since I only let it sit for a few minutes, fortunately the mushrooms soaked up what ran off the cooking fish. Flaky and delicious in 10 minutes!
