I saw Ina Garten make this fish in parchment and it looked amazingly easy and her guests just raved about it. It is very simple to make, has just a few ingredients, but oh my, it is so flavorful. Ina roasted hers in the oven, but since we have 100 degree temperatures, I opted to use my grill. I preheated the grill to 400 and used a perforated grill pan from the dollar store in which to lay the packets of fish. Here's my adapted recipe:
|Tilapia on parchment|
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. (I preheated the grill.)
Place the fish fillet on a piece of parchment paper and sprinkle it with the salt and pepper. Drizzle the lemon juice and olive oil over the top of the fillet. Lay the thyme on top and place the olives next to the fillet.
Beat the egg together with 1 tablespoon of water for an egg wash. Brush the egg wash around the edge of the parchment paper and fold it in half. Carefully fold the edge of the parchment paper under and around the fish to make a package. Place the package on a sheet pan and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until the fish is cooked through. (My fish was thin, so I cooked it about 8 minutes.) Serve hot in the parchment paper.
My hubby who isn't that fond of fish, gobbled this up and said "This is really good!"
