I prepared this dish for dinner this evening, putting my own "twist" on the veggie garnish by using only items I already had on hand (onions, red pepper, zucchini, and garlic - also substituted lemon juice with lime). Placed in oven for the recommended 20 minutes, which was perfect - fish was thoroughly cooked, and veggies still had a bit of a crunch! Paired with a quinoa & black bean salad, for a healthy, protein-rich & DELICIOUS meal!
Tilapia & Summer Vegetable Packets
Wrapping vegetables and fish in a foil packet for grilling or baking is a foolproof way to get moist, tender results. Tilapia and summer vegetables pair with olives and capers for a Mediterranean flair.

I tried this recipe though I made substitutions what I had on hand pretty close to the orginal. Instead of chopping and buying all fresh produce I had a pkg of Summer Vegetables (PictSweet) with all the ingredients and carrots. So I used this and omitted olives since I don't like them. I baked mine in the oven and wasn't done cooking after 20 min. I didn't think I could eat the fish baked so I cheated I would say by adding another 1 - 2 tbsp of oil into a pan and frying it. It was delicious and better than I expected! Well look at it this way least I didn't fry it with a bread coating!
Used what veggies we had on hand, asparagus, green beans, tomatoes, onion, garlic, broccoli, capers, didn't have black olives or lemon juice. Added a Tbsp of italian dressing to each pack. Yum! Ate with a side of Quinoa. Even the kiddies ate it!
I left out the capers and the olives, but other than that made the recipe as is. The fish turned out perfectly and the veggies were colorful, flavorful and something different. The lemon brought the whole thing together. 100% HIGHLY recommended!
We enjoyed this recipe. It was really flavorful. I left out the capers and olives. I also changed the vegetables a little and just used ones I had on hand.
