This grilled tilapia in foil couldn’t be easier! Simply layer a white fish in the fish foil packet, season with olive oil, salt and pepper, top with veggies and GRILL. Lots of bright summer flavors and the perfect meal to eat outside. The grilled fish in foil packets is not only fun, but it’s also functional as flaky fish like tilapia can’t be grilled directly on the grill. It also helps “steam” the fish so you aren’t drying it out.
