“Wolverine John, one of my TOH Recipe Forum E-friends, shared the original recipe for this easy fish entree. The sauce is delicious, and cleanup’s a breeze.”
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds haddock, cod or halibut fillets
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil


  • Place an 18x12-in. piece of heavy-duty foil on a large baking sheet. Arrange fillets in a single layer on foil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with onion, parsley, and lemon and orange zest. Drizzle with oil. Top with a second large piece of foil. Bring edges of foil together; crimp to seal, forming a large packet.

    Instead of fresh orange and lemon peel, I used dried and did not adjust the quantity. I really didn't like the orange peel flavor. We did this on the BBQ instead of inside and it worked awesome. I do love the method of grilling the fish in the packet and will try that again, just with a different set of seasonings.
