My husband was raised in Wisconsin, where his mom and grandma regularly prepared cod for meals.  And let me tell you, he absolutely LOVES fish!  I think I could prepare it seven days a week and he would be thrilled.  To be honest, I can’t say the same for myself.  When I was growing up, we did have fish now and again, but the only kind I cared to eat was the crunchy fish sticks from a box….

That being said, let’s just say that I’ve had to adapt.  And through years of experimenting with different recipes and methods of cooking, I can say that I do now enjoy fish occasionally.  Although I must say that crunchy fish sticks still hold a special place in my heart.

So without further ado….let me show you how to put this delicious and time saving recipe together!

First, make sure to preheat your oven to 425’F.  That way it can be preheating while you’re mixing the marinade and putting the packs together.

It’s very convenient to add all of the marinade ingredients to a liquid measuring cup.  Just combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, canola oil, juice from one lemon and minced garlic in the liquid measuring cup.  Stir this briefly, then set aside.

Coat a 16″-18″ sheet of heavy duty foil with cooking spray.  Then place one fillet and asparagus in the center of the foil.  Brush the fillet with prepared marinade.  Then sprinkle fillet with salt and pepper.

Top fillet with bell pepper and onions.  Then fold all four sides of the foil up and pour 1/4 of the remaining marinade over the fillet.

Finally, sprinkle veggies with salt and pepper.  Then fold and seal the foil to create a pack.

Place on a baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining three fillets.  Place in preheated oven and bake.  For frozen fillets, be sure to add extra time since they will take a little longer to bake (see recipe).
