Recipe for Pesto Tilapia Foil Packs
Makes two foil packs
1 zucchini squash
1/2 a bundle of asparagus
2 tilapia filets
handful of grape tomatoes
Chop asparagus into bite size chunks. Chop zucchini squash into half moon bites. Halve the grape tomatoes. Lay down two long peices of foil on top of each other. (I did three this time as you can see in the pictures, but I recommend two.) Spray the foil with cooking spray. Lay down half of the asparagus and squash in a flat pile in the middle of the foil. Drop two spoonfuls of pesto over the vegetables. Lay the tilapia filet on top. Spread another spoonful or two over the tilapia. Lay half of the halved grape tomatoes on top. Repeat with another two pieces of foil and the rest of the ingredients. Close the foil up around the food. Leave a little space (not too tight) so that it can steam. Place on top of grate on top of the fire. You can also do this over a regular grill or even in your oven. Leave for about 6-7 minutes. (This obviously depends on the heat of your fire.) Flip over. Cook for another 6-7 minutes. Open and enjoy!
(I had extra tomatoes in one pack and extra asparagus and squash in the other foil pack)
We grilled some bread to go with it. Delicious! Gourmet but simple meal around a campfire!
Other camping meals we enjoyed:
-brats on whole wheat buns with grilled corn
-kebabs with marinated steak, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes
-eggs & bacon
-peanut butter with apples and bananas and cheese
