This meal was great for a warm summer night. My fiance and I had a neighbor over for dinner and we all really enjoyed it! My fish rack for the BBQ wasn't big enough, so I ended up making a big foil pouch. I cooked it on one side for 10 minutes and then 8 on the second side. When we split the pouch open the bacon was cooked but not enough, so we threw it on the grill for a minute or two then chopped it up and sprinkled it over the cooked fish. (FYI - 1 pound of snapper / rock fish is about 5 fillets) Delicious. We served it with the Fresh Tomato Salad recipe, (also found on allrecipes.com) which was a perfect pairing. YUM! We'll definately make again! - 09 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The bacon gets crisp with a nice barbeque flavor, the onions soften and caramelize a little, and the fish gets steamed to perfection in the middle with bacon and onion juices! We all loved this dish and will whip it up again for company next time. - 18 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
