Enjoy a taste of the Caribbean with a rainbow mix of seasoned vegetables, tilapia and pears, baked in no-fuss foil or parchment packet.


  • 2 small red potatoes
  • 2 small Yukon potatoes
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, cut to 1” chunks
  • 1 c green beans (fresh, frozen or canned)
  • 1 Roma tomato, cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp chopped white onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Heat oven to 425° F. Scrub potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with other vegetables, seasonings, and olive oil. Spread mix in a 2-quart baking dish and place in oven. Roast until potatoes and other vegetables are tender, about 30-40 minutes.

About 15 minutes after the potato dish was placed in the oven, put in the cookie sheet with fish packets, prepared as follows: Brush fish with olive oil, coat with seasoning blend. Place each filet in the center of a square of aluminum foil (or substitute foil with parchment paper). Cut pears into quarters and core; slice into thin wedges (about 8-12 per pear). Top fish with pear wedges. Bring the foil over the fish and fruit. Fold and pinch the seams. Place foil packets on a cookie sheet. Bake about 20 minutes until tilapia is cooked and fruit is tender. To serve, carefully open the packet, slide contents onto individual serving plates, and add roasted vegetables.
