Fish in Foil

Today I was inspired by the Crock-Pot Blog, but I didn't want to make a fish recipe that involved a mayonnaise sauce. So I followed the commentors and created my own recipe. Do not overthink this recipe - put a mess of stuff in, and food comes out.
  • 2 fillets of tilapia (its fine if they are still frozen, but you will have some excess water when you take them out)
  • olive oil
  • half a lemon
  • vegetables of your choice (I used green beans and red peppers)
  • 4 potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Cutting board & knife
  • Crockpot (I used the 6qt)
  • Aluminum foil
  1. Tear off two pieces of aluminum foil, larger than the fillets.
  2. Chop up the vegetables.
  3. Put half the vegetables and one fillet on each piece of foil.
  4. Drizzle some olive oil and lemon juice on the fish. Add pepper, salt, and spices. Fold foil.
  5. Chop up potatoes. Throw into crockpot with some olive oil and all spices.
  6. Add foil packets on top of potatoes.
  7. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, or, if your crockpot cooks everything on Maximum Hot on low, cook for 2 hours.
This was pretty good, but next time I'll make it with more spices and flavor, and less time - the fish was a little dry, and the veggies were a bit soggy. Definitely recommend for anybody looking for an easy way to cook fish.
