I was not expecting this to be so good, but everyone loved it including my picky eating kids. I bought more of the ingredients, so I could fix it for my lunch every now and again since it was so easy to make. I only had flounder, so that's what I used. I substituted basil for oregano, zucchini for summer squash, and left out the capers, olives, and green beans. Delicious!
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.

Baked as grill element out at the moment.
We don't like olives and capers much (but I had some, so I used a few - recommended). We don't like summer squash so I used cubed sweet potato. Also substituted frozen beans, defrosted.
We have fish baked in foil often, but this was a different flavour and we loved it! Will definitely make again.
We followed recipe exactly and cooked on the grill. Fish turned out perfect! It was moist and flakey. The capers, lemon, olives, and onion add a terrific blend of flavors. Really great dish!
My friends and I were in awe at the amazing flavor of this dish! We added cubes of mostly-cooked sweet potato in the packets to give the dish a bit of a creamy texture (and to soak up the juice). We chose to pop the packets in the oven for 20 minutes rather than using the grill...utter perfection!
