- 1 pound any white fish
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup chopped pineapple
- 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced lengthwise
- ½ cup chopped white onion
- 5 cloves garlic, smashed
- Handful cilantro, roughly chopped
- A few chives, chopped
- Juice from ½ orange
- Juice from ½ lime
- Cilantro for garnish
Method of Preparation:
- Preheat oven to 350˚F. Place one or two large pieces of tinfoil down in a baking pan and place fish on top — you want to form a large pocket for the fish to steam inside of the foil without any juices escaping.
- Season fish with pepper and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
- Add pineapple, tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro, and chives on top.
- Squeeze orange and lime juice over the top.
- Fold top of foil to make a pocket (making sure that the juice can’t escape from the top or bottom of the pocket).
- Bake for about 25 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Top with plenty of fresh cilantro and serve the fish with the natural sauce that forms in the tinfoil pocket.
