Ingredients
  • 1½ cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1½ cups zucchini, diced
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup Kalamata olives, chopped
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • ½ tablespoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 4 tilapia fillets (about 1 pound or so)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, zucchini, onion, olives, olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  3. To make packets:  For each packet, lay two sheets of foil on top of each other, generously spray the top piece of foil with cooking spray.  Place one tilapia fillet in the center of the foil.  Sprinkle with ⅛ teaspoon of salt, and a ¼ of the remaining pepper.  Top the fillet with ¼ of the veggies (about a cup each).
  4. Bring the ends of the foil together and seal.
  5. Bake the packets directly on the oven rack until the vegetables are tender and the tilapia is cooked.  About 20 minutes.
  6. To serve, carefully open the packets and allow the steam to escape.  Eat out of the foil, or use a spatula to slide the contents onto a plate.  Enjoy!
Notes
You can use any combination of your favorite vegetables and white fish for this delicious and quick meal. ** Just remember that some vegetables such as carrots might take longer to cook and should perhaps be steamed for a few minutes before placing into packet.
