Foil Packet Fish with Corn Relish

So after the Hot Wings blog I figured you needed a healthier blog. I made a recipe that I found in my new Food Network Magazine. My mom bought me a subscription and I am in LOVE with it, thank you Mom! I didn't have all the ingredients that the recipe called for, so I improvised and I think this recipe is better. It had soo much flavor! Jeffrey has been eating the salsa that I make him like crazy, so if you go the extra step and use the homemade salsa for this dish, you will have a yummy snack in your refrigerator.

Foil Packet Fish with Corn Relish
2 fillets of white fish, (I usually use Tilapia, but last time Costco was out of it so I bought Mahi Mahi and it was just as good)
2 Corn stalks (is that what you call Corn?? Or is it Corn on the Cobs...?)
1/2 Large Tomato
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup salsa (click here for my homemade recipe, you can use store bought but get one that is smooth, not chunky)
Salt and pepper
Ground coriander (not pictured)
2 Tb fresh parsley (not pictured)
Cut corn off stalks.
Chop 1/2 tomato
Mix corn, tomato, salsa, parsley, salt and pepper
Pull out about 1 foot of foil. Pour 1 tsp of oil on the foil and then place fish on top on it.
Put half of the corn relish around the fish fillet. Spoon 1/2 tsp of garlic on fish filet, then sprinkle coriander over fish. Fold foil into a packet around fish.
Put fish packets in a baking pan and cook on 400 for 16 minutes. You can kinda see how I folded up the packet on the left.
Set the foil directly on the plate for quick clean up. I served with tortilla chips.
This dish could be assembled the night before then put directly in the oven when you get home from work. Jeffrey loved it, he even ate all the leftovers.
