Ohhhh, a tasty fish-on-Friday treat! This recipe is quick and easy AND it’s delicious! You can use parchment paper or foil, I only had foil onhand so I used it and it worked great! This is a Southern Living magazine recipe, the recipe can be found at MY RECIPES if you would like to be able to print quick and easy, otherwise here it is! ENJOY!
Note… on one occasion this recipe seemed far too lemony, so I don’t use 2 lemons, but that’s up to you!
Note: Aluminum foil can be substituted for parchment paper.
YIELD: Makes 4 servings
COOK TIME: 25 MINUTES
PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES
4 (5-oz.) fresh tilapia fillets
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 lemons, sliced
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 tablespoons fresh dill (I used dried dill to taste)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.
Cut parchment paper (or foil) into 4 (13- x 9-inch) rectangles. Place 3 lemon slices crosswise in center of 1 parchment rectangle. Top with 1 fillet. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, fillets, and parchment paper rectangles. Sprinkle fillets evenly with carrot, dill, and parsley. Top each fillet with 1/2 Tbsp. butter. Fold 1 side of parchment paper over fillets; tuck excess parchment under fillets, pressing folds to form a crease.
Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Serve immediately.
