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.

"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. "

I used salmon rather than Tilapia. Also marinated the fish in lemon juice for about 15 minutes prior to assembly. And, I used dried Italian seasoning rather than fresh oregano. Cooked for 30 minutes, probably because the salmon is thicker than Tilapia. It turned out excellent. Very easy and satisfying.


Not the most flavorful but easy and fast. Works if you are looking for a quick healthy dinner.


We loved this. It's a nice, simple dish. Not super, high-sodium, flavourful, but delicous and healthy. It can be soggy if over-cooked.


Bland. I really wanted to like this. It was so pretty & the fish moist. But it all tasted the same. And the texture of the vegetables, soggy. It was gross. My husband tried but eventually threw it out & made himself a sandwich. I suffered through it because of the 1300 calorie diet I'm on. Never again.


A little bland, but healthy, so I would recommend adding a light Italian dressing (~3 tbsp) to the vegetable mix before cooking on the tilapia....I used the Light Red Wine Vinaigrette by Wishbone, and this was a nice to blend with the vegetable mix.
