Tilapia & Veggie packets $6.95
Both Barbara and I found this recipe individually - both storing it away for "someday", but when she saw it in my "someday" pile, we had to jump on it right away! I think we were both intrigued by the combo & the parchment paper (though foil will work if necessary).
Tilapia & Veggie Packets
4 cups baby spinach $1.99
4 tilapia fillets$3.99
8 oz thin asparagus, trimmed & cut into 2" lengths .99
4 tsp capers.60
1/2 tsp pepper.05
8 to 12 thin slices lemon .40
Place oven rack in center of oven - preheat to 425 degress.
Fold paper securely around fish (Woman's Day says to "bring long ends of paper together and fold down 3 times to make a seam. Place on baking dish and tuck ends underneath".)
bake 15 minutes until packets are puffed - open to check - if not opaque at center of fish, reseal and return to over - check again in 5 minute increments.

Once again, the Herons and the D'Egidios both made the same dish, and came out with remarkably similar pictures! We liked this dish ALOT! It doesn't always happen that the Heron/D'Egidio dishes look the same! Must be a good, EASY dish! This is what my fish looked like "right out of the oven!"
