Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia

Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia

1-2 Tilapia filets for each person
Sliced purple onion
Chopped or sliced jalapenos (if desired)
Sliced mushrooms (if desired)
Minced ginger
Chopped garlic
Cajun seasoning
Mayonaise or Miracle whip (you can use ff but it really taste better if you use a lite mayo.)

Spray non-stick on bottom of aluminum foil. Put filet in each foil packet and secure sides. Drop onions, mushrooms and Jalapenos in each packet. Add 1-2 Tbs of mayo in each one plus garlic, ginger and seasoning. Seal top and place on medium low setting on grill for 20 minutes. Open and serve over pasta or rice.

NOTE: You can also do this in the oven if desired. Just line a baking dish with the filets, add veggies, seasoning and mayo (be sure to smear each fillet with mayo) then bake 20 min at 425. Last saturday night, poured ready-made alfredo sauce over it before baking in lieu of mayo. DELICIOUS!!!

This is a family favorite. I count it as 3 pts and serve over TJ's frozen brown rice. A total of 5. I don't use the jalapeno's tho but I put it in here as that is what the recipe calls for. Really tho, this is soooooooooooo good and I make it all the time and the 2 yr old and 19 month old eat it up.
