Four 5-ounce tilapia fillets

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper – could also use lemon pepper

Four 12 X 20-inch pieces aluminum foil

1 medium zucchini, sliced into thin rounds

1 medium carrot, sliced into thin rounds

1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into a small dice

2 medium shallots, thinly sliced

½ C dry white wine – I used Chenin Blanc

2 T olive oil

1 lemon, thinly sliced

Method of Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 425*.

  1. Season the fish fillets with the salt and pepper.  Place one fish fillet at the center of each piece of foil.  Evenly distribute the zucchini, carrot, bell pepper, and shallots among the four packets.  Sprinkle each fillet with 2T of the wine and ½ T of the oil.  Top each fillet with 3 lemon slices.
  2. Seal the packets securely, leaving a little room to allow the fish to steam.  Transfer the packets to a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and carefully open the packets.  Remove the lemon slices.  Serve the fish topped with the vegetables
