Tilapia and Sweet Corn Bundles

And here's another recipe for making bundles in foil for the grill. Tilapia is the fish of choice, but try it with your catch of the day.


2/3 c. fresh or frozen corn kernels
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
1/4 c. finely chopped red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t. chopped fresh rosemary or 1/2 t. crushed dried rosemary, divided
1/2 t. salt, divided ( I like sea salt)
1/4 to 1/2 t. black pepper, divided
2 tilapia fillets, (4 oz. each)
1 t. olive oil

1. Heat grill or oven to 400 degrees. Cut two 15 inch squares of aluminum foil, and fold in half.

2. Combine corn, onion, bell pepper, garlic, 1/2 t. rosemary, 1/4 t. salt, and half the black pepper in small bowl. Open foil; place half the corn mixture on one side of each piece, spreading out slightly.

3. Arrange tilapia fillets on top of the corn mixture. Brush fish with oil; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 t. rosemary, 1/4 t. salt and black pepper.

4. Fold other half of foil over the corn and tilapia, and seal edges. Place sealed bundles directly on the grill or oven rack.

5. Bake for 15 -20 minutes until fish is opaque throughout.
