  1. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Place the tilapia fillets side by side on a large piece of aluminum foil. Season each one with salt and pepper. Place one tablespoon of butter on top of each piece of fish, and sprinkle garlic, basil and tomato. Pour the wine over everything. Fold foil up around fish, and seal into a packet. Place packet on a cookie sheet for ease in transportation to and from the grill.
  3. Place foil packet on the preheated grill, and cook for 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open the packet carefully so as not to get burned from the steam, and serve.

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!


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!


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!!
