Easy Foil Baked Talapia



One of my favorite ways to cook fish is to wrap it in foil and bake it. The fish stays moist and flaky and retains a lot of flavor! You just roll out enough tin foil to lay your fish on and be able to cover it as well. You can line a glass baking dish with the foil, lay your foil on a cookie sheet, or even set the foil directly on the oven rack if you raise the sides enough to prevent the juices from spilling out.


 For the talapia above, I lined a glass baking dish with foil and laid my talapia in the dish. I sprinkled Mrs. Dash Original Blend seasoning (lemon pepper would be good too!)and then cut a lemon in half and squeezed the juice from one half of the lemon onto the fish and then sliced up the other half to lay over the fish while baking. Cover the fish with the extra foil, tucking in the sides to seal any openings.
Bake at 375 until cooked through (flaky and white) --usually 30-40 minutes

  1. Hey, this is a great fish recipe. Reminds me of what I used to eat on my holidays at the North Sea. It was the same thing with aluminium wrap. They had some other spices though, like bay leaves and mustard seeds. You should try it that way. With lemon, of course!

  2. Hi, found you on pintrest and I've really enjoyed searching through all of your recipes since. Your blog is the first I've come across where I can find low carb recipes (my daughter and I cannot eat wheat or corn) that don't call for ingredients that I've never heard of or impossible to find in the small town I live in. I made this for lunch today along with creamed spinach. My kids (all 4 of them) loved it and so did I. My 1 year old ate 4 pieces of fish! I've always liked fish, but the only way I ate it growing up was fried. Deep fried fish is now not something I can't allow myself to have and I hadn't really come up with a way to cook it that I liked, but this was fabulous! This recipe will definitely become a regular around this house. I think I will be trying this with shrimp also.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
