Mr. Food: All-American Fish-in-Foil

If you want a lemony-herb fish dish that’s packed with flavor and easy to make, then you’ve got to try our All-American Fish-in-Foil. We used catfish, because it’s firm enough to stay together and delicate enough to wrap it in foil. It’s a perfectly seasoned, easy-as-can be dinner that you’re going to love to share with family and friends.

What You’ll Need

4 cups fresh spinach
4 (6 to 8 ounce) U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
Garlic powder for sprinkling
Salt for sprinkling
Black pepper for sprinkling
4 lemon slices
8 sprigs fresh thyme
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup white wine, divided

What to Do

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut 4 (12-inch) squares of aluminum foil.
Place 1 cup spinach in center of each piece of foil. Place a catfish fillet on top of spinach. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place 1 lemon slice on each fish fillet and top each with 2 sprigs of thyme. Arrange cherry tomato halves around fish. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of wine. Loosely fold foil over fish and seal edges.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. (Be careful when opening steaming packets.)

Test Kitchen Tip
If you would like to use fish fillets right out of the freezer, go ahead. Just add an additional 10 minutes or so to the cooking time.
