Recipe Review: Emeril's Fish Provencal

When we opened up this month's Everyday Food, there was one recipe that immediately leapt off the page. We had to try it. This month's issue features both Martha and Emeril on the cover, demonstrating their new partnership. Emeril contributed several recipes, including this one for fish Provencal grilled in foil packets. It looked so simple, light, and easy that we had to try it.

It is utterly simple. Lay some cod or another white fish in heavy duty foil. Layer in sliced tomatoes, zucchini, and onion. Add some seasoning and salt and pepper, plus a drizzle of olive oil. Seal up and grill for 10-12 minutes.

And look! You can even do this in the rain!

We were in a hurry so we skipped most of the recommended seasoning, including the lemon zest. We just dashed on a bit of salt, pepper, and paprika, and served the fish with lemon wedges on the side.

The result? Scrumptious! It was melting, moist, and tender, full of flavor from the onions and tomatoes. Everything was perfectly cooked and not overdone.

We were shocked - it was such an easy recipe! Highly recommended; we'd like to play around with it more soon.
