baked fish in foil packets

probs the easiest thing ever, guys.

i’m a busy lady so i apologize for the lack of posting. but don’t worry – i’ve been eating, so the posts will come. dog, doctor, work, work, work. c’est la vie.

anyways – here’s a foolproof way to bake any type of fish if you’re low on time! you can really combine anything with it – any veggies and spices to put any type of twist on it. think indian or asian!

ah, and beware of juices! scoop out fish & veggies but spoon extra juices over top – and be careful when opening. enjoy with wine and act like you’re fancy and slaved over this meal.
