Fish Pockets

Chef Kodi Wilson

I've made these before, but never thought to add veggies like corn and black beans! I saw the idea on Pinterest, so gave it a whirl. I had some leftover corn and black beans from a recipe earlier this week - so it was great to find a recipe to use up the rest. It was so easy, and my picky husband loved it!!

Tilapia filets or fish of choice
Veggies of choice - I used black beans, corn & some green peppers
2 TB frozen limeade (can also use orange juice or lemon - but I'd add some additional spice too, like Chipotle Tobasco for balance)
2 TB butter
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp freeze dried cilantro
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
sea salt

Thaw fish, prepare foil, tear off about 16 inches for each piece of fish. Place veggies on bottom, add about 1 tsp of the liquid juice concentrate. Mix limeade, butter, garlic & cilantro. Place fish over veggies and top with a light dusting of garlic salt, then salt & pepper to taste, finish with butter mixture. The butter mixture will create a tender, juicy seasoning for the fish & veggies.

Bake in foil packets at 400 for 20 minutes.
