Aluminum foil can be subbed for parchment to make the packets.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Really easy preparation for a flavorful and healthy seafood entree. I used pacific cod and substituted sun-dried tomatoes and it came out great!

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.
