Lemon Thyme Tilapia Fish Packets

I love burgers and chicken so much, I could eat then almost every day,  but once in a while I crave some fish.  Jeff isn't into fish at all and Noah wont eat it either so I'm usually stuck making it all for myself and have a ton of left overs.   This recipe is perfect because you can make as little or as much as you'd like and it's about the same effort. 

Tilapia is not super fishy, so if you're a fish beginner this is a great way to start.  It's also really healthy and flavorful so you wont be missing the burgers and chicken too much either, especially since you can make this on the grill and still get a little of the smoky taste.

 6 Tilapia Fillets - thawed
2 Lemons
1 bunch of fresh thyme
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil to drizzle
Parchment Paper

1. Cut your parchment paper to size.  I pulled the roll out about six inches and got one 6x18in ish rectangle.
2. Put one piece of tilapia (or substitute with your choice of fish) on the paper on one of the two halfs of the rectangle so later you can fold the other side over.  Salt and pepper both sides.  Drizzle olive oil.  Add a couple of sprigs of thyme and a couple slices of lemon.  Squeeze some more lemon juice on top.
3. Fold over the other side of the paper and close the sides by making little folds around the paper sides to completely enclose the fish in the packet.
4. Assemble the remaining packets.
5. Heat Grill on high.
6. Cook packets on indirect heat for 10-15 minutes until fish is opaque and cooked through.

Serve and enjoy!  But be careful as they will be pretty hot!  Serve over some rice for a complete meal and at least for one day you can forget about the burgers... although I might have some for dinner tonight. ;-)
