Fish cooked in foil

For flat fish like sole that tend to be rather sticky, either butter your foil very generously so that the skin doesn't stick, or line the foil with something like fresh leaf spinach, or lamb's lettuce.

It just stops the fish sticking if you wan't to avoid using loads of butter.

I have done frozen fish fillets in foil parcels, yes, it is fine but of course make sure you make the cooking time long enough.
put some oil pref olive on the square of foil,place the fillet on this. squeeze over lemon/lime juice,prhaps sprinkle some herbs eg oregano, some salt and pepper. Essentially you can make it up yourself a bit, that's the great thing. If you are using frozen fish, then long slowish cooking.

I do fish with lemon, dill and butter in foil. It's lovely.

I've bought reduced fresh fish over the last few weeks and frozen it- checked with fish monger and fine to do this. It's 1/4 of normal price hence the stockpile!

I have smoked haddock and kippers which I'll use in kedgeree/with poached eggs.

I also have lemon sole, unsmoked haddock and sea bass fillets that I'm not sure what to do with.
I'm not very confident cooking fish so was thinking of doing foil parcels.

So

1. Can I cook fish fillets from frozen in foil parcels.
2. Do you have any recipes?

3. I'd also like to try baking White fish in a tomato based sauce (Mum did about 15 years ago with capers and breadcrumbs)- any recipes and again would I need to thaw?

Thanks!
