Easily put together with an even easier clean-up. This is something your kids can help you make! And it can be changed in a flash by substituting different types of fish and veggie combinations. Tilapia is full of omega-3 fatty acids and protein. I pair it along with some delicious vegetables like kale and sunburst tomatoes. This would be a perfect meal to go with the ZÜPA NOMA “Superfood Souping” plan! It’s the perfect way to boost your metabolism and detoxify.
Foil Packet Baked Tilapia
4 Tilapia fillets
Fresh kale or spinach
Fresh minced garlic (about 1 clove per fish)
4 Teaspoons olive oil (1 teaspoon for each tilapia)
Fresh lemons (optional)
Salt, pepper, smoked paprika and/or your favorite seasonings. Mix together in a separate bowl. Sprinkle combined seasoning over each filet. (about 1 teaspoon for each piece of tilapia depending on size)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Lay each fillet out on its own piece of foil. Make sure that the foil is large is enough to fold the fish and veggies when assembled.
Season each piece of fish with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
Combine all of your veggies in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Top each fillet with the mixture.
Drizzle each pouch lightly with olive oil.
Fold over the fillet and roll up the edges to create a seal. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Once your fish is cooked it will flake easily with a fork.
I love to give it a squeeze of lemon for some acidity at the end.
Now, these can be served straight from the packet for easy clean-up. Or you can remove it from the foil and plate it with the veggies on top. Enjoy!
