Ingredients

  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 4 green onions, sliced

"This is very yummy and has become a family favorite. I have made this with all different kinds of fish. I omit the bacon since my husband does not eat it. I also have put some bottled ranch dressing on the fish before topping it with the veggie mixture and lemon juice and added a few sprinkles of lemon-pepper. Delicious!"

"I used cod & served it to my husband who's not a fish fan but eats it because it's good for him. We both loved it! I'll definitely fix this again & serve it next time we have company. Also, put the packets in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes (out of gas for the grill) They were perfect!"

"I just got my magazine today, and I felt like tilapia, so I opened it and found this. Great recipe. The only changes I would make is I think next time I will cook the bacon separately, I couldn't get the bacon crisp and the veggies not overcooked. I also added zucchini."
