I recently realized that my cooking has been lacking in the seafood area! So I have been definitely trying to amend my ways. And here’s proof!! Pretty delicious proof if I do say so myself! This is my first successful time cooking in foil packets…and I am quite fond of the method! If you haven’t tried it yet, you definitely should. Let me show you how it works!!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 lb Cod Fillets
- 1 Lime
- 1 Tbsp Chili Powder
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- A few slices of shallots or red onion
- 4 Handfuls of spinach
- 1/2 Can Black Beans
- Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil (You can use normal Olive Oil if you wish…it’s just tastier this way :))
- Foil (4 rectangles)
And here’s how you do it:
- Preheat your oven to 350*
- Season your fish with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, squeeze the juice of half the lime. Whisk together with the chili powder and garlic powder to create a paste. Spread evenly all over both sides of the fish.
- Lay out all your rectangles of foil. Place a handful of spinach in the middle of each, then sprinkle on some black beans. Drizzle olive oil across spinach bed.
- Place a fillet on each bed of spinach. Place a few slices of shallot/red oinion on top of each fillet, and top with a little extra squeeze of lime juice and/or infused olive oil and a lime slice.
- Seal the foil on all sides, creating an airtight pouch. Place in your preheated oven and cook for about 15 minutes, until fish is white and flakes easily with a fork. And you’re done! Yaaaay!

Smear all over salt and peppered cod…

Drizzle with olive oil (preferably lime infused. Seriously. It’s delicious. Try this kind:

Seal up all around so you have a packet…
Place in a 350* oven and cook for about 15 minutes, or until fish is white and flakes easily with a fork…
