Easy Oven Packet Caribbean Tilapia with Pears, and Carnival Roasted Potatoes

Prep Time: 45 minsServings: 4
Enjoy a taste of the Caribbean with a rainbow mixture of seasoned vegetables and seasoned tilapia and pears, baked in no-fuss foil or parchment packets.


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks.
  2. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with other vegetables, seasonings, and olive oil. Spread mix in a 2-quart baking dish and place in oven. Roast until potatoes and other vegetables are tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  3. About 15 minutes after the potato dish is placed in the oven, put in the cookie sheet with fish packets, prepared as follows: Brush fish with olive oil, coat with seasoning blend.
  4. Place each filet in the center of the square of aluminum foil. Cut pears into quarters and core; slice into thin wedges (about 8-12 per pear).
  5. Top fish with pear wedges. Bring the foil over the fish and fruit. Fold and pinch the seams. Place foil packets on a cookie sheet. Bake about 20 minutes until tilapia is cooked and fruit is tender.
  6. To serve, carefully open the packet, slide contents onto individual serving plates, and add roasted vegetables. Serve with 8 oz glass of fat-free milk.
