Fish and Veggie Pockets
1 lb asparagus ends trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 orange pepper, sliced
½ cup dry white wine (optional)
Extra-virgin olive oil
2 lemons, one juiced, one thinly sliced
4 (4-ounce) filets of fresh wild salmon, trout, or halibut
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper for seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drizzle the vegetables with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Divide evenly among 4 pieces of aluminum foil. Pour a couple of tablespoons of wine onto each. Place a piece of fish on top of each vegetable portion. Squeeze with fresh lemon juice and top with lemon slices.
Tightly fold up the aluminum foil into a tight package. Place each packet onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
Benefits of this recipe include loads of vitamins and minerals from the veggies. Coldwater fish is the richest source of omega-3 fats. They are also known for lowering risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, as well as improve skin, mood, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
