  • Summary

    This recipe is part of our Back-to-School Meal Plan featuring five easy weeknight dinners made from one grocery bag of ingredients. These easy, build-your-own fish packets let kids help out with dinner and choose which items they want to include. The herb butter infuses the fish and vegetables with rich flavor and the tomatoes release their juices to create a light sauce. If you are following our Back-to-School Meal Plan, make a double batch of the butter and reserve half for the BBQ Pork Chops with Herb Butter Corn and Sweet Potatoes.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped tender herbs (such as cilantro, chives, and/or parsley)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
    • 1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (about 2 1/2 cups), quartered
    • 2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
