This recipe does not include a carb - serve it with brown rice, pasta or potatoes!! This recipe serves a big portion of 2 fish fillets and 1.5C vegetables!
8 fillets tilapia
2C green beans
2C snap/snow peas
2 red/orange bell peppers
2t Old Bay Seasoning (or other all purpose/seafood seasoning)
4-6 green onions, white & green parts, sliced
4oz white wine
1. Snap the ends off the green beans and snap/string the snap peas. Cut both the bell peppers into strips.
2. For each packet, lay out 2 pieces of foil - about 24" long, overlapping about 6 inches. Lay a third strip the same size in the center. If you have counter space, it's easiest to lay out all the packets and assemble them at the same time. That makes it easy to make sure they all get the same amount of veggies!
3. In each packet, lay out 1/4 of the green beans (all lined up) just above the center, and lay out 1/4 of the snap peas below them. This should make a nice green square in the very middle of your foil. Lay 1/4 of the peppers on top in the other direction.
4. Lay 2 tilapia fillets over the veggies. Sprinkle the whole pile of food with garlic and onion powder, and black pepper to taste. Sprinkle each packet with 1/2t of Old Bay. Top each with 1/4 of the green onions.
5. Gently pull up on the long sides of the foil - making a little boat around the food. Carefully pour 1oz of white wine over the fish. Fold both long edges of the foil over the fish, then bring up each end and fold over.
6. Bake for 45 minutes or until everything is tender!
NOTE: Most non-carb veggies are about 40 cals/cup - feel free to substitute your favorites! If you customize each person's packet, just write their name on top of the packet with a sharpie after it's folded up.
You can also prep this meal ahead of time - Just make your packets then stack them in the fridge for up to 4 hours.
Grill the packets over medium coals for the same amount of time - add a dash of liquid smoke to really bring out the taste of the grill!
