Steamed Fish Packets with Stuffed Tomatoes


Steamed Fish Packet (with spinach, swiss chard and lemon)

1/2 pound fresh spinach, rinsed well

1/2 pound fresh swiss chard, rinsed well and chopped (removing stems)

three cloves of garlic sliced

four fillets of white fish (stripped bass) about six to eight ounces each

one lemon sliced into 1/4 inch pieces

4 pieces of Aluminum Foil

two tablespoons of butter divided

~ Start by melting one table spoon of butter and two cloves of garlic in a large skillet. Add spinach and swiss chard in batches. Once it has wilted enough add more until all spinach and swiss chard fits in the pan. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice, season with salt and pepper.

~ Lay out the four sheets of Aluminum Foil. Cut the remaining one table spoon of butter into four pieces, place a piece on each sheet of foil. Place 1/4 off the spinach and swiss chard on each of the sheets. Top with a piece of fish, add pieces of sliced garlic and a lemon slice. Season with salt and pepper.

~Wrap each up each piece of foil and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.
