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. "

Easy and Amazingly Good!

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!

Quick, Tender, & No Mess
A little different; tasty; wholesome; easy

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.

Easy to adapt to your tastes and what you have on hand
More please!

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!

Great flavors with the capers, olives, & onions.
Yummy to the nth degree!

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!

extremely quick and easy to make
it felt so summery even if we baked it in the oven

This is good even in February with an Italian Soave wine and a good rustic bread to soak up the juices on the plate. really good

surprisingly easy great taste with capers ,lemon and olives
