Fish in Foil

Its been a very active 2 weeks for me.

I’ve done at approx.. 185500 steps which is around 126km.

2 Supanovas and a little bit of work. Suffice to say I’m tired but both weekends were great.

I fortunately had a great team helping me out.


Unfortunately I managed to kill my phone yesterday though. Apparently iPhones and water are not a good combo.  Fortunately I have an old android phone I can use until I sort it out but I’m still upset about it.

You may have seen on my Instagram that I’ve gotten a new planner for next year and also some new craft supplies to use in it. I’ve been a little hooked lately on glam planning videos on YouTube . It just looks like a fun creative outlet. Some more stickers arrived today which cheered me up  little.

I was supposed to put up my Christmas tree today but the day sort of got away from me. I got a few errands done and I dropped some friends at the airport then I started working on designing some inserts for my above mentioned planner so I just didn’t get around to the tree. I will hopefully get to do it tomorrow night since it is December first.  Expect a picture of it on Instagram on Wednesday.

In other news B is back! He got back on Wednesday night but then was in Canberra for the weekend. Its nice to have him back in the house even if the majority of the time I’ve seen him he’s been asleep.

Todays recipe is one I got to have a few times when B was away. He doesn’t eat fish so I normally don’t cook with it but it was nice to use it for a change.  This is just one of the flavour combos I used but you could flavour the fish however you like and even cook other veg in the pouch with the fish. This is a super easy recipe perfect for a busy or lazy day.

Fish In Foil



1 white  fish fillet (I used Basa)

2 Tomatoes

A handful of fresh or dried basil

Salt and pepper

Aluminium foil


200 C

How To:

You’ll need a piece of foil that will wrap all the way around your piece of fish with a bit of space around the edges.

Slice both the tomatoes and lay half the slices in the middle of the foil slightly overlapping so you can lay the fish on top.

Season the slices with salt and pepper and scatter half the basil over the top. Lay the piece of fish on to then scatter the remaining basil over the fish.

Lay the rest of the tomato slices on top of the fish and  season again.


Bring together two edges of the foil and fold several times to seal. Fold up the ends to seal the parcel.

Place on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 mins (or 25-30mins  if the fillet was frozen).

Voila! Delicious and easy fish.

You can serve it with some  steamed veg (which you can cook in a foil pouch like the fish) and couscous or rice or with chips and a salad.

Let me know if you give it a go and especially if you try a different flavouring.
