tilapia summer spaghetti

I love spaghetti with fish and vegetables, dressed in white wine, olive oil and lemon. This dish did not disappoint.

Since I don’t have a go-to recipe for an olive oil, lemon and white wine sauce, I always do a quick online search to see what recipes call for ingredients similar to what I have in the fridge and pantry. I found this Fish en Papillote recipe from @MelissadArabian at @FoodNetwork.

Melissa’s recipe calls for garlic, carrot and lemon, which I did not have. So, I improvised… I cooked tilapia, zucchini, red bell pepper, mushrooms and onions covered with an olive oil, white wine, lemon juice and touch of butter sauce in parchment paper. Then, I sprinkled with fresh basil and served on a bed of whole wheat spaghetti. It was delicious!
