Emeril's Fish Provencal
My wife, Alden, is a big fan of fish prepared this way. It's a perfect method for grilling fragile fillets, and with the vegetables you've got an all-in-one meal!
- 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon anise seed, crushed
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1 small sweet onion, such as Vidalia, thinly sliced crosswise
- 6 small zucchini, thinly sliced
- 4 haddock, cod, or striped bass fillets (6 ounces each)
- 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Heat grill to medium. In a small bowl, combine lemon zest, Italian seasoning, red-pepper flakes, anise seed, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Set spice mixture aside.
Place four 14-inch squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil on a work surface. Dividing evenly, place onion on one half of each square (leaving a 2-inch border), followed by the zucchini; season with salt and pepper. Top with fish; sprinkle with spice mixture. Top with tomato; drizzle with oil. Fold foil over ingredients; crimp edges to seal.
Place packets on grill. Cover and grill until fish is just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove packets from grill; open carefully (hot steam will escape), and transfer fish Provencal to serving plates.
