Fish foil packet: all-in-one dinner

This easy fish foil packet recipe is a game changer!

After a long day at work and then heading to the gym, the last thing I want to do is whip up an intricate dinner and then have to wash all the dishes, pots and pans. I love recipes that are quick, easy and delicious; luckily this recipe is just that! I was craving another form of lean protein since I eat a fair amount of chicken and ground turkey. As I wandered the aisles of Trader Joe’s (where I find myself at least a few nights a week), I came across the frozen fish section.  I thought, ok, let me give this dover sole fish a try since my usual go-to’s are tilapia and salmon. I grabbed a package of frozen dover sole, which is reasonably priced at TJs, and threw it in my basket.

What’s a healthy meal without your veggies? So I grabbed some of my faves, a few spices and headed back home to whip up this easy one pan (or foil) dish.

This was one of the easiest dinners that I’ve made in a while and one of the healthiest. Full of lean protein, veggies, healthy fats and seasoning, it’s a great meal to cook up to enjoy  solo, with your friends or significant other! Trust me, they’ll be impressed and you will be grinning from ear to ear knowing how easy it was to make.  Better yet, how easy it was to clean up!
