Whitefish In Foil


2 lbs. fresh lake whitefish fillets
2 green peppers, sliced
2 onions, sliced
1/4 cup butter or margerine, melted
2 T. lemon juice
2 t. salt
1 t. paprika
dash black pepper


Preheat grill. Rinse fish and pat dry. Cut into serving-size portions. Cut 4 pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil, 12×12 inches each, grease lightly. Place a portion of fish, skin side down, on the foil. TOp with green pepper and onion. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour sauce over fish. Bring the foil up over the food and close all edges with tight double folds. Make 4 packages. Place packages on the grill about 5 inches away from medium heat. Cook for 18-30 minutes, depending on thickness of fish. Fillets will flake easily when done. If cooking inside, prepare packages the same way, then bake at 450°F for 15-20 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
