A quick, healthy meal with little clean-up, and open to countless variations to suit any taste. Does it get any better?!
  • 2 packages Ramen noodles
  • 1 cup dried mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 – 4 oz grouper filets
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 quart vegetable broth
  • ½ cup mirin or cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • Zest and juice from 2 limes
  1. Preheat your oven to a whopping 400 degrees Fahrenheit. (You don't store anything in your oven, do you? Check!)
  2. Crunch up those noodles. Get someone small to help you. Divide them among the foil pieces. Then place on top the following: fish, mushrooms, zucchini, jalapeños, lime zest, salt and pepper.Wrapping time! Pull up the corners and side of the aluminum foil to all food is safely encased inside. Leave a "chimney" for pouring in the wet ingredients.
  3. Mix together the liquids: vegetable broth, mirin (what is that anyway?) or cider vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, and sesame oil.
  4. Pour an equal amount down each chimney, sealing it off afterward, with the exception of a small steam vent.
  5. Pop it all on a baking sheet to contain and overflow.
  6. Bake those babies for 15 minutes and serve 'em up good and hot!
