Tilapia FlorentinePosted by in Fish | Parchment Paper Packets
From start to finish I had dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes with this really flavorful dish.
For each packet:
1 tilapia filet (about 4-6 ounces)
2 arugula leaves, center rib removed
2 tablespoons diced tomato (canned or fresh) mixed with a pinch of sugar
1/4 teaspoon capers
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Place the arugula on the parchment and set the fish on top of it. Cover the fish with the other ingredients. Fold the parchment (see Technique page) and bake at 400 for 12 minutes. Serve with some warm Italian bread and some carrots cooked with dill and you have a complete meal.

Your family is so lucky. What pretty, flavorful dishes you make!
What Living Large said…dinner must be a treat at your home every night!
I’m really curious as to what the arugula does to this dish. Is it for flavor?
Flavor, color, and packing in more veggies!
I love tilapia–this recipe sounds perfect for my family. Alto I think I’d use some fresh basil in place of the arugula.
I am amazed at how you come up with so many creative recipes. I always repeat the same four or five things, over and over and over….
I really, really want to start raising my own tilapia. And then I could make this all the time.
This is my kind of fish dish. I wonder if I could substitute mizuna for arugula, since i have a big bag from my CSA and I love the taste. Or even tatsoi or bok choy.
Yes, you could, but the bok choy would probably still stay a bit crunchy.
