Mix it up! This recipe is super versatile. Use either frozen (thawed) or fresh fish. Use your own favorite fish! Cod, hake, haddock, or grouper are all perfect options. This recipe also works well with plaice fillets that you roll up.
You can also try throwing some peeled or shell-on shrimp into the mix. The simplest, best option is to add peeled and cooked shrimp just before serving. But you can also try adding shrimp toward the end of cooking. Just be careful when opening and resealing the foil package mid-way through, to avoid leaking – or burning your hands with steam!
