The tropics conjure up images of leisure for me, so it’s fitting that this tropical fish requires little more than easy assembly. Once the coconut rice is started and the papaya-topped fish is tucked in foil, I can sit for a few minutes, rising just to stir the rice.
Each piece of fish cooks in its own packet, making cleanup minimal. You’ll have just the rice pot to wash.
Select fish filets less than 1-inch thick and relatively uniform in size to ensure proper cooking. Fresh pineapple slices from the produce section make a nice finish to the meal.
