Easy Grilled Fish In Foil Packets

Easy grilled Fish in Foil Packets!! My foolproof way to cook fish.

I love cooking fish in foil packets. Not only is it really easy to make sure the fish doesn’t dry out but it also you create your own little flavor bomb of deliciousness. The amazing thing about this technique is you can literally use any fish you have on hand and your favorite vegetables and herbs.

When I do this on the outside grill I cook the packets over indirect heat. Meaning I heat up half the grill on high and set the fish on the side that is not on. Close the lid and in 8-10 minutes your fish is ready and perfectly cooked.

When I make these I love using halibut or salmon. They are thicker pieces of fish and hold up well once they are cooked. My favorite flavor pairing is using marsala wine, cherry tomatoes, summer corn, fresh garlic, herbs and lemon zest. But again you can literally use any flavor combos you love. Easy, versatile, healthy and very little clean up!

Servings 4


  • 4 pieces wild halibut filets
  • 2 corn on the cob kernals removed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry marsala wine
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsely
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 large pieces heavy duty foil


  • Divide the corn and tomatoes onto the center of each piece of foil, season with salt. Place the fish in the center right on top of the corn, season with salt and pepper . Grate garlic and lemon zest over each piece and sprinkle with fresh parsely. Begin to fold up the edges then add 1/4 cup marsala into each packet. Fully seal foil so that it's completely sealed and no steam will escape, creating a loose tent.Heat half of the grill (on one side) on high heat with the cover closed.When the grill is hot, place the foil packets on the side of the grill with the burners off (indirect heat) and close the grill.Depending on the thickness of your fish, cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and cooked through.
