Sometimes it seems like we can get so carried away with the daily grind that we have so little time to actually prepare a meal. And sometimes I get carried away with lavish weeknight meals that take me far longer to prepare than I actually have time for. So let me tell you a quick and easy meal that works with almost any fish.
As a landlocked native with little to no ties to the sea, fish is a luxury. But the real reason I hardly ever prepare fish is because it stinks, and it lingers, and a week after having it the air is still heavy with the smell of fish. and that just won’t do. Until….I happened on this preparation and my world was changed. I would assume that this is common knowledge for most folks but it was a revelation for me. Bake the fish in a packet. No steam, no fish fat molecules to get into the fibers of my couch and the best part…no fish clean up.
