  • Rinse tilapia fillets and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Cut a large section of aluminum foil and place a small handful of the onions.

  • Fold up the sides of the foil to create a container and add 2-3 tbsp. white wine and 5 tomatoes.
  • Take both ends of the foil that are on the sides of the tilapia and roll them together so that you form a pocket and the contents are sealed up.
