Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

 This recipe from allrecipes looked so tasty, light, and easy to make that I added it to my list of recipes to try.  We planned to make it on the grill, but since it was cold and rainy when we went to make it, we improvised and made it in the oven.  It was very flavorful and light.

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes
From: AllRecipes

2-4 Tilapia fillets
2-4 Tbsp butter
2-3 cloves garlic, pressed
2-4 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat a grill for medium high heat (or preheat oven to 450 degrees)

2.  Place the tilapia fillets on aluminum foil (either individual aluminum sheets or one large one).  Season each one with salt and pepper.  Place one Tbsp butter on top of each piece of fish, sprinkle garlic, basil and tomato.  Pour wine evenly over each fillet.

3.  Fold foil up around fish and seal into a packet.  Place packet on a cookie sheet.

4.  Place foil packet on the preheated grill or oven, and cook for 15 min on grill or 10-12 min in oven. Open packet carefully (there will be a lot of steam) and serve.
