Flounder and Veggie Foil Packets

There are two times during the year when I resolve to eat better. One of course is in January and the second is back to school time. This upcoming fall I have signed up for 4 races (8k,10k, and two 5ks).  After some liberties I have taken this summer with workouts and with eating I need to get into training mode.  With all that  said, I have started to make healthier dinners. I made the following last week and it was a hit with everyone!


Ingredients (serves 2 adults 2 kids): 1 1/2-2lbs of a flaky white fish (we chose flounder), Any desired veggies you want to add in packet. I picked the following from the farmers market that day. 1 fresh corn cob (kernels off the cob),  1/4 of onion sliced, 2 tomatoes diced, 1 jalapeno cut in rings (for adults only), and 1/2 a small red pepper diced, olive oil, desired seasoning (we used Old Bay Lemon Herb), juice of 2 lemons and one lemon sliced in rings,  salt and pepper, non stick foils.



Preheat oven at 400 degrees. Place a piece of flounder on foil (rectangle), rub fish with some olive oil. Season fish with seasoning and some lemon juice and put lemon slice top of fish and follow with veggies (season with salt and pepper and any other seasoning you wish). Seal foil and place in oven for 20-25 min. Once it is done open up foil packets with caution. Enjoy!

  1. I use tilapia, which is what I did for lunch today with pineapple, using pineapple juice and old bay seasoning to flavor the fish. At first I was skeptical but cooking fish this way is rather delicious.
