  1. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Place the tilapia fillets side by side on a large piece of aluminum foil. Season each one with salt and pepper. Place one tablespoon of butter on top of each piece of fish, and sprinkle garlic, basil and tomato. Pour the wine over everything. Fold foil up around fish, and seal into a packet. Place packet on a cookie sheet for ease in transportation to and from the grill.
  3. Place foil packet on the preheated grill, and cook for 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open the packet carefully so as not to get burned from the steam, and serve.

excellent recipe! I changed it around a bit though. Instead of grilling the tilapia, I baked it on a 13x9 in baking dish, at 425 degrees for 20 min. I sauteed some mushrooms and onions in a litt...

Easy to make with a delicious, full flavor. This is a favorite at my house. I follow the recipe exactly, except that I cook it in foil in a pan in the oven at 400 degrees for around 20 minutes.

It was too chilly outside to grill, so I made this on the stovetop, poaching the fish in a covered saute pan. Used about a 1/2 can of drained petite diced tomatoes since fresh tomatoes sold at ...

This was an excellent recipe. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I used diced canned w/ garlic, oregano and basil and added extra garlic. I do think it could have used more salt, but it wa...
