    Starrynews's Note:

    A friend brought a similar recipe to a potluck, and we enjoyed it so much that I knew I needed to make it at home! It has a nice, light flavor that doesn't overwhelm the fish. We have made this both by baking it in the oven and by putting it over a campfire and checking it periodically, removing it when the fish flakes easily. Also - I don't add salt to my dishes, so you may want to add some if you think you would prefer it that way.

    1. 1
      Sprinkle paprika and cayenne pepper on both sides of the tilapia fillets.
    2. 2
      Place each slice of lemon in a piece of foil, large enough that it can be folded to fully cover the fish. Add garlic to each of the four.
    3. 3
      Top each lemon slice with a piece of fish and tomatoes.
    4. 4
      Add a stalk of fresh rosemary to each foil pack and seal foil. Place in a baking dish (to catch any juices that might escape during cooking).
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 350F and bake 15-20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.

      This is my style of cooking. Wrapping the fish in foil helps to keep it moist. It also makes clean up a breeze. This was served with a foil wrapped packet of asparagus and mushrooms. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

      This recipe just did not work out for us. I don't know if our fish was bad or we just didn't like the taste (hence the no stars) I usually love your recipes Starry so I'm sure this was an oops on my part. I apologize!

      The flavor of lemon and rosemary is a great combination. I used sliced tomatoes, otherwise followed the recipe. It had a great flavor, but we found it to be floating in juices, this is the only downside we saw, it could have been the tomatoes or just very moist tilapia.
