Tilapia en Papillote

This Tilapia en Papillote is a delicious, quick, and easy way to bake fish! The end result will be very juicy thanks to the parchment paper keeping everything moist :)


Tilapia en Papillote


  • 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


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. Serve with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.
