Aluminum foil can be subbed for parchment to make the packets.
1 (8-oz.) package haricots verts (thin green beans)
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons drained capers
1/3 cup green olives, quartered
4 (4- to 5-oz.) fresh white fish fillets (such as snapper, triggerfish, flounder, or grouper)
1 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lemon, quartered
1/4 cup torn fresh basil
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°. Divide first 6 ingredients among 4 (17-inch) squares of parchment paper. Top each with 1 fish fillet. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil. Squeeze juice from lemon over fish; place 1 lemon wedge on each fillet. Bring parchment paper sides up over mixture; double fold top and sides to seal, making packets. Place packets on a baking sheet.
Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 140° to 145° when inserted through paper into fish. Place each packet on a plate, and cut open. Sprinkle fish with basil. Serve immediately.

So easy and so delicious! As a single, young professional, I am always on the lookout for easy, tasteful, and healthy recipes to make for dinner, and this one definitely fit the bill! I even omitted the onions and olives and it still had so much flavor with even such a simple fish as tilapia.
We liked the fish and it was easy. I didn't have the green beans. I used individually frozen pkgs of Tilapia and baked it for 30 min. When I opened the parchment pkgs there was a lot of "juice" and the fish looked poached. Maybe if I had used fresh fish there wouldn't have been so much liquid, not that the liquid was a bad thing, especially since I served it with rice.
I think unless you need individual pkgs for some reason, you could make this in a 9" x 12" baking dish and just cover with foil. Even easier.
