Baking in foil is one of the easiest ways to cook fish. This technique also helps to keep fish moist and flavorful.

Serves 4
 Dad's Own Cookbook

1 tablespoon butter
4 red snapper fillets, 4-6 ounces each*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
Salt and pepper

Four 9-inch squares of aluminum foil
11 x 17-inch baking sheet

* FreshDirect Note: Since our snapper fillets run a bit larger (6-8 oz) than this recipe recommends, you may wish to buy 3 fillets to serve four adults.

1.Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2.Place four 9-inch squares of aluminum foil on the counter and butter them lightly.
3.Lay 1 fillet in the center of each piece of foil. Sprinkle each fillet with lemon juice, parsley, and salt and pepper.
4.Bring the top and bottom ends of the foil together and fold together, without pressing on the fillets, until you have a neat package. Now fold over the sides, being careful not to press too close to the fish.
5.Arrange the foil packets on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
6.Slit open the packets with a knife and ease the fish and its juices onto a plate.

Serving Suggestions
• Serve with herbed baked new potatoes.
• Serve steamed snow peas, sugar snap peas, or asparagus.
