{We Conquered the Coast!}

Last Friday Michael and I took off work and headed down to Corpus Christi for the 2011 Conquer the Coast bike ride and a little get away. We ate some sea food, stuck our toes in the sand, saw some dolphins, and had a great time!

Mmm crab!

So proud of him! 70 miles!

{Tasty Tuesday: Asian-style Tilapia Packets}

One of our most favorite and easiest things to make!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 12-15 minutes
Serves: 4

What You'll Need:

  • 4 Tilapia fillets {1 to 1 1/2 pounds}
  • 4 sheets heavy duty aluminum foil, 12x18 sheets
  • 1 bag {10 oz} fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup Central Market Organics Soy Ginger Sauce {or other Asian dressing}


  1. Heat oven to 450 F
  2. Divide fish into 4 portions. Place 1 portion in the center of each foil piece; season with salt and pepper. Place spinach, mushrooms, and onions {evenly divided} over each packet. Season again with salt and pepper. 
  3. Bring up edges of foil; then drizzle 2-Tbsp sauce over each packet. 
  4. Double fold tops and then ends of foil to seal. Place packets on baking sheet.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes. Open packets carefully {steam will escape}. Serve immediately with brown or white rice. 

Enjoy! We hope you make this part of YOUR tasty Tuesday!
