Grilled Mediterranean Tilapia Packets

Blogger Sarah W. Caron from Sarah's Cucina Bella shares an easy recipe for grilled tilapia.

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 30 min
  • Servings 2

1
cup grape tomatoes, halved
1
cup artichoke hearts, chopped
1/2
cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
2
tilapia fillets, rinsed
Salt and pepper, if desired
Lemon wedges

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, stir together tomatoes, artichoke hearts and olives; set aside.
  • 2 Cut 2 (18-inch-long) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Place 1 tilapia fillet in center of each sheet. Spoon tomato mixture evenly over tilapia. Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 3 Place packets on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.
  • 4 Open packets carefully. Sprinkle salt and pepper over top; serve with lemon wedges.
