Bahamian Style Foil Baked Fish

28 Feb

The first time we heard about the “Fish Fry” in Nassau, we thought everyone was talking about deep fried fish. Luckily, the BAD word “fry”, did not keep us from visiting the “Fish Fry”. What we discovered was wonderful place to enjoy fresh seafood cooked on the grill.

During our son’s wedding trip to Nassau, we took a group of friends to the “Fish Fry” and everyone fell in love with the foil packed fish cooked over the grill. Here is my version of it. This is a easy way to cook any white fish, and your house will not smell like fish when you bake it this way.

  • 2 boneless fillet of bass or any white fish
  • 2 ripe plantains, peeled and cut in 2 inch wide slices
  • 3 roma tomatos, cut in quarters
  • 1 sweet onion, cut in quarters or slices
  • lime, cut in half
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut foil twice the length of a cookie sheet or large baking dish. Spray the bottom of the foil with olive oil spray. Rub the fish with one half of the lime. Season the fish with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.  Place the fish in the foiled topped dish. Squeeze lime juice over the fish. Place the plantain, tomato and onion around the fish. Close the foil packet tightly. Bake in 400 degree oven 30 min or grill over medium high heat.
