Southwest Catfish Foil Packet

Several weeks ago I made Picante Fish a recipe I found on a YouTube channel called Texas Style Cuisine. It was so easy, healthy and delicious. It gave me all kinds of ideas for more foil packet meals. The possibilities are endless and experimenting will surely be delicious. But even better the clean up is almost nothing. I mean I used a plate here to take a pretty picture for you, but honestly you could enjoy this meal right out of the foil pack. This foil packet is still southwest in flavor. I built a bed of canned black beans and corn, then topped with bell pepper, red onion and tomatoes. The veggies protect the fish and helps to keep the fish moist while grilling. To season the fish I used a homemade Fajita Seasoning and green salsa. Both add Southwest flair, but the salsa adds moisture and flavor. I topped with a fresh flourish of cilantro. It was so good! I love how you get almost all the food groups in one neat packet. This is such a fast, easy weeknight meal. I plan to make it many more times in the future. I hope you enjoy it too.
