In this easy tilapia recipe, tilapia fillets are simply prepared with white wine, garlic, fresh basil and tomato, then wrapped in a parcel and cooked on the barbecue for a mere 15 minutes. Quick and easy! You can also cook the parcel in a hot oven if it's not barbecue season!

healthy and delicious with a few easy modifications--doubled the garlic and tomato, drizzled each fish with a small amount of olive oil and omitted the butter, added lots of salt and pepper and a splash of fresh lemon juice, sprinkled fish with dried basil rather than basil leaves (didn't have any on hand). baked in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes in 9x13 covered tightly with foil but can't wait to try it on the grill this summer. i served it up with brown rice and green beans for a nutritious and delicious dinner. i will keep this one in my regular rotation for sure! - 12 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a great recipe! I did alter it a bit for my taste - baked it in the oven in a 9x13 pan for 20 minutes at 425 - threw all the indredients on top, included a splash of lemon, left out the tomatoes (don't like them) and I sauteed some onions and portobello mushrooms while I was waiting for the oven to heat up and put those on top too when I baked it. I didn't have fresh basil on hand so I used dried - still delicious! This is the first tilapia I've cooked that wasn't just so-so! - 28 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought this recipe was great; I will definitely make it again! I tweaked it just a tad. I only used 1/2 T. of butter on each piece of fish. I used more garlic because I love it. I will also use more basil next time. I didn't have fresh tomato, so I used a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes, drained. I squeezed some lemon juice and sprinkled with feta cheese just before serving. YUM!! - 11 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
