New Recipe: A little fish

I love cooking chicken, and B has mastered the grill, but fish is sort of an un-touched territory for both of us. I found this great recipe on oxygenmag.com for a white fish, so I decided to give it a try! They are called "fish pockets" because of the way you cook them, and you can choose any white fish you like, I did Tilapia and I highly recommend it.

Ingredients:
- 1 sliced tomato
- 1 sliced onion
-12 oz white fish
-1 small zucchini, cubed (I used cucumber)
- 1/4 cup white cooking wine
-Lemon
-Lemon Pepper
-Pepper

Directions:
- Preheat oven to 375
-Turn up sides of foil creating a pocket
-Layer your ingredients in this order: tomato, onion, fish, then zucchini
- sprinkle lemon pepper and pepper on each layer, and pour wine and squeeze the lemon over the fish
-Close up foil so the pocket is closed and place in baking pan
-Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish is opaque

Here's what it looked like before closing it up

6oz of fish in each pocket

Final product with a spinach salad and home made balsamic vinegar dressing

This was honestly the easiest dinner ever, and it tasted great! Prep time was no more than 10 minutes and bake time was 15 minutes in my oven, and that was it. I got the fish from Sam's Club and there were 10 pieces. After doing the math, I figured out each slice was about 2.7oz so I did two slices per pocket. I made 4 pockets and we had two for dinner, so with a little brown rice on the side, we are both set for lunch tomorrow! 

On a side note, I made a facebook page for the blog, because I've been getting tons of interaction/ questions, and I would love for everyone to share! So like little b here
