Veggie Fish Foil Pockets

Servings 6 servings


  • 6 6-oz. firm fleshed white fish fillets
  • 2 leeks cut into strips
  • 2 heads fennel cut into strips
  • 2 medium carrots julienned
  • 2 medium red bell peppers de-seeded, de-ribbed and cut into strips
  • 10 sprigs fresh dill
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons white wine (or use white grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar)
  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil wrap


  • Preheat outdoor or indoor grill. Cut six 12- X 14-inch rectangles of foil wrap. Place a fish fillet on each square; fold up the edges of the foil to create a ‘dish’; evenly top each fish fillet with vegetables, dill, salt and pepper and 1/2 tablespoon of wine (or juice/vinegar). Fold edges of foil packets together and seal completely. Grill for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Be careful of the hot steam when opening the foil pockets.
