    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tilapia fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup julienned carrot
  • 1/2 cup julienned zucchini

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine first 5 ingredients; set aside. Cut parchment or heavy-duty foil into four 18x12-in. lengths; place a fish fillet on each. Top with carrot and zucchini; drizzle with orange juice mixture.
  • Fold parchment over fish. Working from bottom inside corner, fold up about 3/4 in. of the paper and crimp both layers to seal. Repeat, folding edges up and crimping, until a half-moon-shaped packet is formed. Repeat for remaining packets. Place on baking sheets.
  • Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape.
