Tilapia Peach Packets.

Tilapia Peach Packets

makes 4 packets

4 tilapia filets

2 peaches, peeled and sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced


1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 medium red onion, sliced

In a food processor or blender, combine peaches, garlic, olive oil and parsley and blend until combined and pureed. Add tilapia filets to a baking dish or a ziplock bag and cover with puree. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 12-14 hours.

When ready to cook, heat the grill on the highest setting. Tear 4 squares of aluminum foil – mine were about 10 x 10 inches each. On the bottom of each pocket, lay 3-4 slices of red onion. Even if you don’t like onion this is a great way to flavor your fish! Remove tilapia from the marinade and lay each filet on top of the onion. Fold up the sides to close the packet and place on the grill onion side down. Grill for 10-12 minutes, or until fish is just flaky.

If you don’t want to use the grill, you can also do these in the oven – preheat to 425 degrees and bake in the packets for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish flakes. Serve with grilled asparagus and rice.
