Grilled Tilapia Hobo Pouches


4 Tilapia fillets

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/2 medium onion, cut into rings

4 garlic cloves, sliced

1 medium red pepper, julienned

4 fresh thyme sprigs

Olive Oil


1 Cut off 4 lengths of heavy duty aluminum foil and line with 4 pieces of parchment paper (not waxed paper). 

2 Spray the parchment lightly with cooking spray and place 1 fillet in the center.  Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.  Top with 6-8 onion rings, 1 garlic clove sliced, 4 or 5 pepper strips and a sprig of thyme.  Drizzle with olive oil and fold up the parchment pouch.  Fold up the foil so that it's sealed well.

3 Place on a moderately hot barbecue and cook 4-6 minutes per side.  Remove from heat and serve.  Open carefully as there will be steam trapped inside the parchment pouch.
