Mediterranean Fish Packets

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 sheets of foil or parchment (about 12 x 12 inches each)
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into ¼-inch rounds (at least 8 pieces)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced (about 3 large cloves)
  • 1 14.5-ounce can low-sodium stewed tomato pieces
  • 1 pound cod or other firm white fish, cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 Tablespoons reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon each, dried basil, oregano, and pepper
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 Tablespoons chopped black olives (optional)

Seasoned Cook: For more fiber, add ½ cup cooked whole grains, beans, or lentils to the foil beneath the vegetables. If using fresh herbs, remember to triple the amount.


Method

  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • On each piece of foil, layer zucchini and onion slices, ½ teaspoon garlic, and 2 tomato slices.
  • Top with the fish, then feta and olives (if using). Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon each of the basil, oregano, and pepper. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Rest 5 minutes.
  • Remove fish from foil and arrange on plates.
