Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Caribbean
Serves: 4
  • 1 6-oz pack of white fish fillets
  • green seasoning to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • chive and lemongrass butter, unsalted
  • 2 blades of lemongrass (optional)
  • Foil
  • 1 lime
  1. Wash the fish with lime and season with the green seasoning and paprika. Marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Place fish on a square sheet of foil and dot with the chive and lemongrass butter.
  3. Add lemongrass leaves if desired. Note: I added the leaves because I wanted to push the lemongrass flavours a bit.
  4. Cover with another sheet of foil then seal.
  5. Place on a baking sheet or flat pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  6. Open the packet carefully and discard lemongrass. Serve hot.
After seeing the packet expand like a balloon I know next time to prick with a fork to allow the steam to escape.
