Foil-Wrapped Fish with Onion

EasyBakedFishFilletsThis is too easy to really be called a recipe, but I find that fish is best when cooked simply.  Wrapping fish in foil makes it very moist and flavorful.  I used a pound of Arctic char, which is a healthy and eco-friendly fish.  It has lots of omega-3 fats like salmon, but it is less expensive than wild salmon.  (See article about salmon filed under “What’s News.”)  You can use another type of fish if you prefer, but the char was especially delicious when I cooked it this way.  Try serving it with a baked potato and steamed green beans for a really quick and easy summer meal.

Place the fish on a large piece of aluminum foil (about 3 times the size of the fish).  Dot with 1/2 tablespoon of butter and lay very thin slices of onion on top.  Fold long ends of foil together and pinch to seal.  Next, roll up the short ends of the foil and seal tightly.  Place on a hot grill for 10-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.  Check for doneness.  Fish should just flake.  Do not overcook, as it is the surest way to ruin fish.
