Foil Baked Tilapia

For those nights when you are tired and really don't feel like cooking you should consider making fish in foil. It is one of the easiest ways to cook fish.

Here is what I put together:
2 pieces of Tilapia
2 tbsp butter
1 lemon, zest and juice
1/3 cup of leeks, sliced
a pinch of lemon pepper seasoning
Capers ( which I added after taking the fish out of the oven)

Wrap the fish in foil and put all ingredients on top. Seal the foil. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 - 25 minutes depending on how thick your fish is.

This is an incredibly easy way to make fish. The foil locks in the flavors and keeps the fish nice and tender. Another benefit is that the foil wrapped fish makes clean up a cinch.
