Fish Fillet Packets in foil

These fish packets can be cooked under the grill, on a barbecue or in the oven or steamed in a steamer.

You can use any vegetables of your choice….steam or bake first for 10 minutes, then add fish and steam for a further 10 minutes or until cooked when tested.

2 cups very thinly sliced assorted summer squash (such as zucchini, yellow crookneck, and pattypan) 4 tablespoons dry white wine
1/4 cup thinly sliced shallot 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil, plus cup basil leaves Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Fold four 24×12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil in half crosswise; open foil and place on a work surface. Divide squash among pieces of foil, arranging in layers on one half of each piece of foil. Sprinkle shallots and sliced basil over, dividing equally. Scatter tomato halves around squash. Drizzle each with 1 Tbsp. wine and ½ Tbsp. oil; add ½ Tbsp. water to each packet. Season with salt and pepper. Place a fish fillet atop each portion of vegetables. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle ½ Tbsp. oil over each fillet.

Fold and crimp edges of foil to seal packages. DO AHEAD: Can be made 4 hours ahead. Chill. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before continuing.

Build a medium fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. Place packets on grill grate. Grill until fish is just cooked through (a toothpick poked through the foil will slide through fish easily), about 10 minutes. Carefully cut open packets (steam will escape). Garnish with basil leaves.
