Fish it’s whats for dinner. At least in the Mason household. I have been trying to incorporate more fish into our diets. I mean we live at the coast we should be eating fresh fish all the time. I found this recipe on Pinterest and made a few changes (I highlighted my adaptations in pink). This dish was cheap, healthy, so easy to whip together, and super tasty. I made it for dinner while one of Matt’s friends was in town visiting and we all cleaned our plates. The sign of a great meal. Then I proceeded to break my plate (wine at playgroup + more wine later= broken plates). I have a feeling we will be making this meal many more times. Perfect for entertaining. Here is my picture of our packets- not as pretty but oh so good! Enjoy!
Foil-Baked Fish with Black Beans and Corn
•4 skinless white fish fillets (6 to 8 oz each), 1-inch thick (we used Mahi)
•salt and pepper
•4 Tbs unsalted butter, softened
•2 tsp minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (I couldn’t find so I omitted)
•1 tsp grated orange zest
•2 Tbs freshly squeezed orange juice
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1 (16-oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
•2 cups corn kernels (I used 3 ears fresh corn shucked)
•1/2 red onion, minced
•2 scallions, minced
•1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Adjust the oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat to 450 degrees.
Pat the fish dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mix together the butter, 1 teaspoon chipotle, orange zest, half the garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper in a medium bowl until well-combined. Spread butter mixture over the fish. ( I only mixed my butter with garlic and salt and pepper)
Combine the beans, corn, onion, scallions, 2 tablespoons of cilantro, orange juice, remaining chipotle, remaining garlic, scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl.
Lay four 14-inch lengths of foil on the counter and divide the bean mixture evenly over the lower half of each piece of foil. Top with fish, and fold the foil over the fish, folding the edges to seal.
Arrange the packets in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Carefully open the packets and sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Serve.
