Make Ahead Fish: Lemon Caper Tilapia

Do you want to eat fish more often to get all of the awesome health benefits but you do not want to waste all of the time cooking for just one or two servings? Then you need to try this make ahead lemon caper tilapia recipe! I found this recipe on and it is perfect for a busy professional single woman- I can make 6 servings ahead of time and freeze them individually-  then when I am in the mood for fish, I just pop out one of the foil packets, pop it in the oven and voila!

6 tilapia filets (fresh or frozen is fine)
-  1 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
-  1 1/2 tbsp capers
- 1 1/2 medium garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 c olive oil
- 1-2 medium lemons, juiced
- foil

1. Cut foil into 12 squares. Lay out six squares and put aside the other six squares of foil aside.
2. Put 1 tilapia filet on each of the six squares.  Lift up the edges, divide all of the remaining ingredients among the six filets. 
3. Put a second square of foil on top of each tilapia filet and roll the foil edges together tightly to form a packet. 
4. Place each packet flat into a freezer bag and freeze until ready to serve.
5. When you are ready to have a serving, thaw, bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until fish is firm.

6. Add some veggies, rice or quinoa, and you have a fabulous delicious and healthy meal!
