Lemon-Dill Tilapia

 Tilapia is quick, easy, and everyone in the house likes it.  You can do so much with it.  This was so pretty after I assembled it....with the yellow, orange, and green.

Lemon Dill Tilapia

4 fresh tilapia fillets
salt & pepper
2 lemons, sliced thinly
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 T fresh dill
2 T fresh parsley
2 T butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.

Cut parchment paper into 5 13x9 rectangles.  Place 3 lemon slices crosswise in center of each rectangle.  Top with 1 fillet and repeat for all fillets.  Sprinkle fillets evenly with carrot, dill, and parsley.  Dot with butter.  

Fold 1 side of parchment paper over fillets; tuck excess parchment under fillets, pressing folds to form a crease.  (YES, I read this 8 times to figure it out.  I ended up folding over one side, then creasing and tucking the rest under...then folding/creasing the ends.)

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes with fork.

And dinner.....plated!  Kace at the lemons first....of course!

We liked it!  I served with carrots that I boiled in chicken stock and sprinkled with dill.
