Tilapia en Papillote

Good morning!

In between getting work done yesterday, I made two batches of my vegan 5-Minute No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars — yum!

One of the batches was for me (heh), and the other was for the woman who won them in Tina’s blogger bake sale last week! They went for $50, woohoo!

012

I got them all individually wrapped and ready to be mailed off tomorrow to the lucky winner :)

I think I’m going to freeze most of my batch — I love having these bars handy for quick snacks!

And now, the recipe I promised you yesterday! This was the other dish (in addition to the roasted chicken) that my team made in food science lab on Monday night.

Mmm…

Tilapia en Papillote

Ingredients:

  • Tilapia fillets & one piece of parchment paper per fillet
  • Chopped veggies (we used red onion, red pepper, yellow squash, and asparagus)
  • White wine
  • Butter (optional — can also use olive olive)
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375.

1.  Place one tilapia fillet on a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with chopped veggies, drizzle on some wine, and dot with butter or olive oil. A dash of garlic powder and/or other fresh or dried herbs would also be delicious!

2.  Fold the parchment paper over the fish/veggies and seal by folding up the edges and twisting them shut — this will seal in the juices and steam the fish.

3.  Put the fish on a baking tray and pop it in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, until the fish is flaky and fully cooked.

Yum! Serve with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

I loved how the parchment paper kept everything so moist — the veggies (especially the squash) were really awesome cooked like this as well!

I just ran 4.3 (sweaty, humid — fall, where are you?!) miles with the girls this morning and now I’m off to class — have a wonderful day, friends :)

    I’m with you, fall, where are you! We want rain in Atlanta, forgot what it looks like. I’m not a fan of fish, but, I might just have to try this Tilapia recipe. Have a nice fall day.

    I’ve always wanted to bake meat in parchment like that. It’s so cute in the pocket, but like you said I’ve heard it’s super moist.

    What a great recipe! I have never tried cooking in parchment paper like that but your dish looks so simple and healthy.

    Almost a full meal in one package!

    I love making treats and putting them in the freezer. I usually forget about them and then while digging in the freezer one day will come across them – it makes me so happy!

    parchment paper?? You class has so many interesting ideas :)

    This is actually my favorite way to eat fish, although I use aluminum foil instead of parchment paper. So simple, juicy, and flavorful.

    I made the Tilapia for my husband today when he came home for lunch and he loved it. Although I am not a fish eater, I must admit that I also enjoyed it because it did not have a fishy taste or smell. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I am SO making those bars! YUM!!!

  19. 22

    En papillote is SUCH a great way to cook fish! I keep forgetting about that… maybe it’ll inspire me to finally try my hand at making fish again :)

  20. 23

    Your bars look great! I’ve been wanting to make my own granola bars lately, so I might have to give your recipe a try. Thanks for sharing!
