Flounder Packets

These flounder packets are fun to make, and they’re low in fat and calories, too. “You can substitute catfish, orange roughy, sole or perch,” notes Susan Gardner of Independence, Missouri.

Ingredients

  • 2 flounder fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  • Place each fillet on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Sprinkle with salt and pepper; top with red pepper, cucumber and onion. Combine the soy sauce, oil and ginger; drizzle over vegetables. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
