Tilapia gets a twist with lemon and dill. Aluminum foil can be substituted for parchment paper.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Cut parchment paper into 4 (13- x 9-inch) rectangles. Place 3 lemon slices crosswise in center of 1 parchment rectangle. Top with 1 fillet. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, fillets, and parchment paper rectangles. Sprinkle fillets evenly with carrot, dill, and parsley. Top each fillet with 1/2 Tbsp. butter. Fold 1 side of parchment paper over fillets; tuck excess parchment under fillets, pressing folds to form a crease.

Step 3

Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Serve immediately.

Excellent way of cooking tilapia. I added a mango-habanero sauce to mine and it was divine!

This was a great Monday night dinner. We added some spring vegetables to the packet and they were so good and tasty! Not a single bite left on the plates. I would recommend this recipe to everyone. Enjoy and thank you Myrecipes for a great go-to meal.

Great dish! I've made it a few times and it's delicious every time. Also have made it with red snapper and halibut.

Soooo good! Flavorful and very moist. Loved it. I served this with sauteed spinach and Greek Style Lemon Potatoes (also wonderful). I will make this again!
