Kitchen Dads™ - Grilled Fish in Foil

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Yields: 18


  • Aluminum foil
  • Spinach
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 squash, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. Cut aluminum foil into a square large enough to accommodate one serving.
  2. Put one fish fillet on the foil about 3/4 from the bottom. The foil will eventually be folded into a packet so that when opened, the fish will be in the first-third of the sheet.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste and drizzle olive oil for flavor and moisture.
  4. Add vegetables. For this recipe there is spinach, garlic, chopped onions, Kalamata olives, large diced squash, and cherry tomatoes, but use whatever you like or have on hand. Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
  5. Fold the aluminum up to form a packet. Crimp foil edges to seal, moving around the edge to form a half-moon. Be sure it is sealed tightly.
  6. Place the packet on a medium-high grill (around 400 degrees) for about 10 to 12 minutes.
  7. Check if the fish is cooked by making a small slit in the foil and use a fork to test.
  8. Be especially careful when opening the foil packet, since there will be an accumulation of steam.
  9. Garnish with fresh herbs.
  10. Remove to dinner plates, or eat right out of the foil for casual dining with virtually no clean up.
