How was your holiday weekend? We had a great one…lots of food, family and fun. Everything was delicious, but as usual, I just ate way too much…which is when meals like this come in handy. Something light to kick off the week after a big holiday meal is always a good way to go. So, the timing of this Secret Recipe Club post couldn’t be more perfect, even though I made this dish about 3 weeks ago.
My assignment this month was Erica’s blog, Itzy’s Kitchen. Erica has a lot of good recipes, many which are light and healthy. I had a hard time choosing one to pick, but ended up making this on a Friday which were meatless for us these past 6 weeks.
If you haven’t used this technique at home, don’t be afraid to. It’s easy and delicious, and yields great results. A healthy one-pouch meal that hits the spot! Feel free to use whatever type of protein and veggies you have on hand, and whatever seasonings you prefer.
Thanks for a great recipe, Erica!
Tilapia & Veggie Packets
slightly adapted from Itzy’s Kitchen
tilapia filets (one per packet)
chopped vegetables (I used tomato, red onion, green beans, mushrooms, garlic)
salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a pan and saute veggies until slightly soft.
Cut parchment paper in a piece and place fish in the center, then sprinkle chili powder over it and top with lemon juice. Place veggies on top and fold parchment into a sealed envelope. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes and use caution when opening since steam will come out.
