Fish in a Tin ~ Friday Favorite

We've been home from the beach for 2 weeks ~
why does time just crawl when your not sitting under an umbrella?
I was craving the flavor of the beach. One of our favorite places in Orange Beach is Calypso Joe's. It's a bit of a mess right now, with construction . . . but we still enjoyed sitting outside at the marina. This is my favorite thing on the menu! Here is my version . . .

Fish in a Tin
4 talapia fillets
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup mango chunks
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup sliced carrots
1 onion, sliced
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tbs WhistleStop Marinade (optional)
red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
Salt and pepper
Combine coconut milk with fruit and veggies and set aside. (I used frozen pineapple and mangos, so this gave them a chance to thaw). Tear 4 large pieces of aluminum foil for each fish fillet.

Place each fillet in the center of the foil, sprinkle generously with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes for a little spice. Divide the veggies and sauce evenly over each fillet. Seal the foil packets so that the juice won't leak out.
Bake at 400°  12-15 minutes.
Open the foil and serve with rice.

It's a taste of the beach ~
That's a Friday Favorite.
Y'all join in~

When read the title I thought - 'oh oh, Sandi has made her famous salmon loaf again!'

I haven't cooked in foil in years - this looks wonderful.
