The following recipe is one I’ve created to use with any fish and makes a delicious tasting meal. It is also really easy to prepare and although the recipe is designed for an oven, you can with a bit of practice use it on a campfire too.
The recipe serves one so if you have more than one person simply make a packet for each person. You will need the following ingredients;
Half a medium sized potato, peeled and sliced very thinly. (or 3-4 baby potatoes)
1 fish fillet (about 200g in weight)
Root vegetables (cut into chunks)
2 tbsp of olive oil or a couple of sprays of fry light
Juice of half a lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Before you start making the foil packet, preheat your oven to 200°C.
In the centre of the foil place the very thinly sliced potato and spread it out slightly. Pour 1 tbsp of olive oil over the potatoes (or 2-3 sprays of fry light) so they all get a little coating and add the salt and pepper.
Place the fish fillet on top of the potatoes, pour the other tbsp (or 2-3 sprays of fry light) of olive oil over the top of the fish and a little on the vegetables, if you want a bit of spice carefully sprinkle half a tsp of chilli powder over the fish and squeeze the lime juice over the top of the fish. If you don’t wish to use the chilli just squeeze the lime over the fish.
Add the root vegetables around the edge of the fish and place a few pieces of onion on to the top of the fish and then carefully fold the foil over, make sure the seams of the foil packet are sealed nice and tight (scrunch them together if need be) to make sure none of the liquids can escape.
