This grilled bruschetta fish recipe is a quick summer meal for the bbq. Using only 7 ingredients, but full of fresh flavours.
Summer can be a busy time of the year with meals being enjoyed around the grill. BBQ season often gets associated with being less nutritious with grilled hamburgers, hot dogs or steak but fish is a great option too.
Grilling fish can help to switch up your routine, while also providing benefits of omega 3 fats. Health Canada recommends to consume fish twice per week for that reason. You can grill fish on cedar planks, directly on the grill, or in foil packets like this recipe uses.
This grilled bruschetta fish is perfect for summer as the produce, like tomato and basil, you may have growing in your garden or available at the local market.
- 4 haddock fillets
- 2 tomato chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion diced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 6 fresh basil leaves roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- salt and pepper dash
- In a small bowl combine the tomato, red onion, garlic clove, basil, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Stir together.
- Place 2 haddock fillets in the centre of a long sheet of aluminum foil and top with half of the tomato mixture. Repeat with the other 2 haddock fillets in a separate aluminum foil.
- Carefully wrap the aluminum foil over the fish and fold up the edges so that the haddock mixture is in a formed, sealed packet.
- Heat the grill to high with the cover closed to allow it to heat to temperature.
- Turn the heat to medium and place the packet on the grill cooking for about 10-15 minutes.
- Serve with your choice of grilled potato, rice or baguette and salad.
