Garden Fish Packets Recipe

"I frequently serve this flavorful combination of fish, vegetables and cheese over a bed of rice," writes Sally Davis of Warren, Pennsylvania. "It's quick to assemble, and the foil packets make cleanup a breeze."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 pounds cod or haddock
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Drizzle the butter over eight pieces of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.). Cut fish into eight portions; place one portion on each piece of foil. Sprinkle all with seasoned salt and lemon-pepper. Top with vegetables and cheese.
  • 2. Loosely wrap foil around fish; seal top and sides. Place in two ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 23-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Carefully open foil; transfer fish and vegetables to serving plates. Yield: 8 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: To make 8 servings, double the amount of vegetables and cheese and add to all fish packets.

"Love these!! I make a single batch with the veggies only. This was initially in the magazine to make extra to use in another recipe. So use half the cod for a single dinner."
