Grilled Foil Packet Tilapia with Pesto Veggies

"Cleanup is a breeze when serving Grilled Foil Packet Tilapia with Pesto Veggies. Perfect for a quick, easy and healthy dinner for the family or entertaining with friends. "

Prep Time: 5 min Cook Time: 10 min Servings: 4


4-6 cups of chopped vegetables (zucchini, peppers, yellow squash, corn and cherry tomatoes)

¼ cup of pesto (homemade or store bought)

1 pound of tilapia filets, fresh or frozen

4 lemon slices

salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat grill to medium (about 400 degrees). In a bowl, combine vegetables and pesto and stir until well coated. Divide vegetable mixture between 4 large sheets of foil. Top each pile of veggies with a piece of tilapia. Add a slice of lemon and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold sides of foil up to meet in the middle and fold closed, then fold in sides to seal foil packets. Add foil packets to grill and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Tilapia is done when it is white instead of translucent and flakes easily with a fork. Drain excess liquid from packets before serving.
