For years, tilapia has been popular in South America, where the fish is prized for its tender, mild, white flesh and its wild popularity is largely due to its versatility. The fish can be cooked in a variety of ways, including being battered and pan seared, or eaten whole as a salad. Tilapia is easy to fillet and freeze, meaning it cooks quickly and is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time.

This blog is about new ways to cook fish. I have lots of ideas for fish recipes, with some of them based on my experience. I know that most of the recipes on my blog will have challenges for you. But, you can try them, and if you succeed with one of the recipes, please share your story with me.

These Tilapia foil packs provide a punch of Asian flavor and freshness thanks to fresh herbs and aromatics. Best of all, they’re easy to make and can be done in about 30 minutes on the grill or in the oven. Serve them with cauliflower rice for a low-carb, nutritious dinner. 

My mother was in town, and we were eating dinner with my husband’s family. We were planning on making fried fish, but thought that something baked or in a foil packet would be preferable for my father-in-dietary law’s restrictions. Because he can’t have a lot of salt, using a lot of fresh herbs and aromatics is the greatest method to add taste. We went to the Asian store and bought fresh basil, lemongrass, ginger, cilantro, and garlic before deciding to grill Tilapia foil packs.

My mother had to create a Thai ‘Salsa,’ or nam jim, since we are a spicy family. The salsa is made out of a sauce made up of Thai chilis, garlic, cilantro stems, lime juice, and fish sauce. This sauce was very hot, yet we managed to love it! This was also the day we prepared 50 spring rolls and ate them all amongst the eight of us. Probably because the Thai chilis had set our tongues on fire.

We cooked the Tilapia foil packets on the grill the first time and in the oven the second time. Both methods were wonderful, so it’s truly up to you how you choose to prepare it. After 25 minutes, check on the fish, and when it’s flaky and white, it’s done. The fish was served with cauliflower rice and a dish of sautéed herbs. Serve some of the remaining liquid from the packet as well; it’s rich with flavor!

  • Preheat the oven or grill to 400°F. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper.

  • For the packets, use heavy-duty foil and divide the herbs into three portions.

  • Place one layer of herbs and aromatics on the bottom, followed by two seasoned filets, additional herbs, then the last two filets and herbs. Bake for 25 minutes after firmly sealing the package. If the fish is flaky and white when tested with a fork, it’s done.

  • Serve with rice and some of the cooked herbs, as well as the package liquids.

Tilapia is a very popular fish in the United States since it is a sustainable, high protein and low fat fish that can be prepared in many different ways. One of my favorite ways to prepare tilapia is to remove the fillets from the bone, and then wrap the fillets in egg cartons, jazz them up with fresh herbs, and then cook in the oven (I use this method to prepare my Tilapia with Fried Rice)..
