Why You'll Love this Recipe
Nonetheless, while we hang on to the final weeks of summer, this crazy easy and super delish fish packet recipe needs to be in your rotation.
You can assemble them ahead to make entertaining and busy weeknights a breeze. And if the weather isn't cooperating to fire up the grill, your oven will do the trick as well.
I'm using farm market fresh veggies, but in full disclosure, we can score some greenhouse variety of broccoli and zucchini year-round to enjoy this recipe throughout the seasons.
And, when the weather turns too cold to grill outdoors, you can easily crank this out in the oven.
When sealing these beauties up, be sure to enclose them entirely but leave space for the steam build.
In less than ten minutes you'll have delicate, flaky halibut on a bed of summer veggies laced with lemon, white wine, and thyme. Make the most of August, friends! Enjoy!!

Grilled Halibut Broccolini and Zucchini Packets
- 6 12-inch squares of heavy duty aluminum foil
- 1 ½ pounds zucchini, cut into ½-inch coins
- ¾ pound broccolini, ends trimmed
- ½ pound heirloom grape tomatoes, halved
- ½ large red onion, thinly sliced
- 6 6-ounce 1 – 1 ¼ inch thick halibut fillets, (about 2 ¼ lbs)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 6 tablespoons dry white wine
- 24-30 sprigs of fresh thyme
- Zest of 1 large lemon
- Divide the zucchini, broccolini, grape tomatoes, and red onion evenly among the foil squares.
- Place a fillet on top of the vegetables. Drizzle olive oil over the fish and vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour 1 tablespoon of wine over each fillet. Top with 4-5 sprigs of fresh thyme. Grate lemon zest over the fish.
- Fold up foil and seal edges to enclose completely, leaving space for steam to build. Transfer packets to a large, rimmed baking sheet. (Packets can be made 4 hours ahead. Chill. Remove from refrigerator 30-45 minutes before continuing.)
- Preheat grill* over medium-high heat. Grill packets with lid closed until fish is just opaque in the center, about 8 minutes. Let the packets rest 5 minutes before serving. Transfer to plates. Be careful opening due to the hot steam. Serve with crusty bread to mop up juices. Enjoy!
