The baking time for fish in foil at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) can vary depending on the thickness and type of fish. As a general rule, you can estimate about 10 to 15 minutes per inch of thickness.
Here’s a basic recipe for baking fish in foil:
- 4 fish fillets (6 ounces each), such as salmon, trout, or tilapia
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
- 4 lemon slices
- Aluminum foil
- Place each fish fillet on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap it completely.
- Top each fillet with a tablespoon of butter, a lemon slice, and a sprig of fresh herbs.
- Fold the foil over the fish and crimp the edges to seal the packet.
- Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
- Carefully open the foil packets and serve the fish hot.
Note: Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness and type of fish, so it’s important to check the fish for doneness by using a fork to see if it flakes easily. If the fish is not cooked through, return it to the oven for an additional 2-3 minutes and check again.
