Baked Tilapia en Papillote

Well what do you know, it’s a recipe and not kid spam.

I used to make this recipe weekly, I have no excuse why I stopped. It’s now being put back on rotation because it’s so good and SO easy. I was able to prepare this with one kid whining at my feet about how she was starving while simultaneously feeding a whiny baby. Plus, there is no real clean up, which will make the husbands very happy.

2 Tbs  fresh ginger, finely chopped or grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
2 green onions (green part only), finely chopped
Serrano chile to taste
1 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 Tbs olive oil
Dash of toasted sesame oil
Dash of soy sauce
Dash of fish sauce
4 tsp dark maple syrup

4 Tilapia filets, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine all topping (first 10 ingredients) in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste

Prepare 4 sheets of parchment paper by folding each sheet in half and placing a tilapia fillet centered onto one side of the fold of each sheet. Divide topping evenly among them, spreading it over the top.

  1. Wow that looks AWSOME I will have to give this a try for sure Hunter loves tilapia so I have a few different ones I make but this is totally different.

  2. You’ll love it. Side dish was brown rice quinoa pack from Costco. (Amazingly K loves it) And green beans.
    But I tried the Londoners pad thai salad tonight and it was really good!
