Fish in Foil Packets w/ Grilled Fennel

We can call this "Snapper in a Wrapper", or just fish in foil.

Anything, so I don't have to light my oven during the dog days of August.

You can really do this with any white fish.

I bought some nice red snapper and placed the fillets in heavy duty foil.

You will also need:

A splash of white wine for each package, along w/ a handful of fresh herbs (thyme, basil, parsley at this house).

Sprinkle the fish w/ kosher salt & pepper.
Throw on some lemon slices and scatter around some kalamata olives.

Drizzle with some olive oil and seal up the packages nice and tight.

Grill on a low temperature grill for about 12-15 minutes.

While the fish is cooking, slice some fennel (anise, finocchio, whatever you like to call it) and drizzle w/ some olive oil and kosher salt.

Grill the vegetables along side the fish. They take about 8-10 minutes, turn them once, and make sure they don't burn.

When ready to serve, plate the grilled fennel in the center, then place the steamed fish and juices from the foil packet on top of the fennel.

I added orange slices to the plate, because orange and fennel are nice together.

Easy peasy.

I was going to make this tonight, but got home so late, I resorted to another beet salad, also good. I even got the fennel today. So tomorrow I am making this recipe, just like in your photo, and I know I'm going to love it. I hope you get better soon, dear Stacey.

This sounds heavenly. Question - other than myself in my family, no one is fond of fennel. Is there any other vegetable similar to fennel that can be substituted?

You can grill thick zucchini rounds or onions, whatever you like! Too bad no one likes fennel, it's my favorite!

Have a great weekend!
