Flounder Zucchini Bundles

A lovely hint of lemon carries the flavors of this colorful meal-in-one. My husband is not a fish eater, but he certainly enjoys this recipe. —Isabelle Rooney, Summerville, South Carolina

    I made one as directed for my husband except I used catfish and one for me using a boneless pork chop since I am not a fish eater. I think it would also be good with a chicken breast. It was very easy and tasty!

    This recipe was okay. The lemon was nice with the fish and veggies.

    It was very light and would be a great hot weather dinner. I did one packet with salmon and one with flounder . Both turned out well. I thought the veggies tasted really nice and lemony - added in some thinly sliced yellow squash as well. I used fresh dill across the top but the dried basil. I didn't feel like the fish really got the basil/dill flavor but the lemon made it taste nice. Maybe next time I might dot the fish with a little butter as well. Solid but not spectacular. Overall thumbs up.

    I used fresh herbs from our garden and it turned out really good. I used home grown zucchini & tomatoes and it was very tasty. My husband doesn't like tomatoes or zucchini so I omitted those from his packet. The flounder had a nice fresh taste. For sides I had red potatoes and corn on the cob. Best of all, it was easy to clean. We'll be having this again.
