Steaming foods, like fish, cooks the ingredients and intensifies flavors without cooking away important nutrients. Steaming is a healthy cooking option that doesn't use harmful fats to treat the meat. For a no-fuss, clean way of cooking, use foil wrap as individual fish steamers or steam all your fillets together. Individual steamer envelope makes a fun presentation for guests and foil packs keeps food warm longer. Combine your favorite herbs and spices to create a fish dish that your family or dinner guests will enjoy every time.

Choose fillets or whole fish for steaming.

Step 1

Pull one 12-inch square of aluminum foil for each fillet. If steaming several fish together, pull away 2-3 feet of foil. Place the foil wrong side up on a counter.

Step 2

Combine 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, 1 tablespoon of lemon, 3 tablespoons of chopped, fresh parsley and 2 tablespoons of white white in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the ingredients together for 30 seconds.

Step 3

Place the cleaned fish in the center of the foil. Cover the fish with the warm herbal concoction. Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4

Fold the foil over the fish, pulling the bottom up first then the top down over it. Seal the two short corners by crumpling them together. This makes a steam pocket that cooks the fish.

Step 5

Steam the fish for 10 to 15 minutes. Then remove the food from the oven.
