Easy Tilapia Packets

  • Tilapia filets-one for each person
  • veggies-frozen or fresh-whatever you have, we have made these with asparagus, and this time we made them with some baby carrots and frozen broccoli
  • Sauce-we have made these with mayo and cheese for a creamy sauce, you could also use salsa or black beans, tomato, lime and corn-but my personal favorite is coconut milk and thai peanut satay sauce.
  • Place your tilapia on a square piece of tinfoil or waxpaper
  • Put a spoonful of sauce over the fish-if using coconut milk-just pour enough to cover filet-not enough to pour out the sides
  • Add veggies (picture before wrapped up)
  • Make packets by folding up the edges and sealing by rolling the ends up-if using wax paper, you might want to staple the folded up edges to keep them together just until the steam from the fish and veggies seals it up
  • Place in the oven at about 350 and cook until fish flakes with a fork usually about 20 minutes-check one after 15
  • Let your family open the packets and dig in. Yum and delish! (Your kids are more likely to eat something they helped prepare, and this is something healthy and delicious that your kids will love to make and eat-and it's all wrapped up-which any kid will like. All a win win!)
