Tilapia with Black Beans and Salsa


This is a very easy and delicious way to make fish during the busy work week. You can use healthy salmon with its Omega 3s, if you prefer!


  • 4 (6 ounces) pieces of tilapia (or fish of your choice)
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 teaspoon sunflower oil
  • 1 cup organic black beans
  • 1 cup pico de gallo salsa
  • 2 scallion greens, sliced on the diagonal
  • 4 12″ x 15″ pieces of parchment paper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place each piece of fish in the center of the parchment paper. Add salt and pepper. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil on fish. Sprinkle with ¼ of the black beans, salsa and scallion greens. Fold the side and ends of parchment paper 2 to 3 times, making a packet. Repeat until you have 4 packets.
  3. Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake in oven about 10 minutes, until fish is opaque. Baking time will vary depending upon the thickness of the fish you use.
  4. Place each individual fish on a plate and cut the paper carefully in the center, making a “cross.” Serves 4.

Blogger’s note: You may want to add salsa and scallions after fish is baked (makes for a prettier presentation), but I prefer it baking with the salsa juices. I also prefer using a hot salsa.
