4 garlic cloves, minced
2 scallions, thinly sliced into rounds
1 shallot, minced
2-3 roma tomatoes, small dice
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin sticks
1 lemon cut into small cubes
½ cup pitted black olives, chopped
½ cup capers
¼ cup olive oil, a bit more for brushing
¼ cup dry white wine
6 tilapia filets
6 sprigs thyme
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together the garlic, scallion, tomato, pepper, lemon cubes, olives, capers, olive oil, and season with salt & pepper. Season the tilapia with salt and pepper.
Cut six pieces of parchment paper into 12 x 16 pieces. Brush half lightly with olive oil. Place the filet a little off center on the oiled side. Spoon 1/6th of the mixture on top. Sprinkle with wine. Add a sprig of thyme.
Fold over the parchment paper so that the ends meet. Starting at one corner make a small fold to close. Repeat making small folds all around the opened edges until you have formed a semi-circle. Tuck under the last corner to prevent the liquids from spilling out. Brush each top with a little olive oil and place the packages in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve each package on a dinner plate and let guests open packages at the table…careful, some hot steam will escape.
