Fish In Foil

Well, that’s a boatload of carp! It’s time to dispel the fishy myth that seafood dishes are a pain to make and start adding more “vitamin sea” to your weekly meal planning. My favorite way to prepare fish is in foil. It’s a super-easy technique that anyone can do, and it’s perfect for one person or a whole posse. I love how moist fish is when prepared this way, plus it’s low in fat and nearly impossible to screw up. And the best part? Cleanup is a snap.
