No, you’re not daydreaming! 🙂 You read that right… today we are sharing a 10-minute, healthy fish stew packets recipe — and you won’t have to wash a single pot! How can that be? Well, check it out.
Our fish stew is like no other. It is quick to prepare yet healthy… and you won’t wind up with any pots to wash. I call it “the magic meal!” Haha.
I am not kidding… All you have to do is lay a fish fillet and a few vegetables such as tomatoes onto aluminum foil… Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, fresh lime juice, and light coconut milk, and then wrap and bake for about 10 minutes. Voilá… you have a healthy meal fit for a king! Like I told you, it cannot get any better, folks!!!
These fish stew packets are my contemporary take on a traditional Brazilian dish, moqueca de peixe baiana (Bahian Fish Stew). Moqueca is a dish from Bahia, a state in Northeastern Brazil influenced tremendously by African-Brazilian culture. The difference between our fish stew packets and a traditional moqueca is that the latter is prepared in a pot, takes more time to cook, and is not as healthy as this one. That means that with these foil fish stew packets you can have a taste of Bahia without the hassle. 🙂
This is my little way of enjoying a taste of home while accommodating for my busy yet health-conscious lifestyle. Life is all about balance; each of us has to find our own. Healthy yet tasty food and moderate exercise are one way to find enjoyment without taking years off of one’s life… right?
I not only try to live by this principle, but also to pass it on to my children. Speaking of children, this dish is so easy that even a seven-year-old could prepare it. Layering, seasoning, drizzling, and wrapping demand no special skills. The same thing goes for cleaning up after preparing our fish stew packets. Again, even a child can do that! We used Dreft All Purpose wipes to clean off all surfaces with spills. Easy, peasy! If you would like to find out more about Dreft products, visit the Dreft home website and print a $0.50 off coupon.
