Paul Problem Fish Packets
Makes 4 servings

Need a quick, healthy dinner idea?  No problem.

2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1-1/3 cups TRADER JOE’S Harvest Grains Blend (see note)
4 cloves garlic, minced
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
4 tilapia fillets, 6 oz. each
4 cups baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup julienne sliced sun-dried tomatoes, drained
4 tsp. olive oil
4 lemon slices

Heat grill to medium heat. Microwave broth in 2-cup glass measuring cup 3 minutes or until just boiling.

Place large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on flat work surface.  Spray center with nonstick cooking spray. Bring up foil sides 2-inches all around to create pool, pinching corners slightly so that no liquid escapes while you assemble the packets. Layer with 1/3 cup grains, 1/2 cup broth, 1 clove minced garlic, 2 chopped basil leaves, 1 fish fillet (season with salt and pepper), 1 cup spinach, 2 Tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes and 1 tsp. olive oil.  Top with lemon slice.
Bring up foil sides. Fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.  Repeat with 3 more foil sheets and remaining ingredients.

Grill on indirect heat 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork and grains are tender. Carefully open foil packets and serve.

TRADER JOE'S Harvest Grains Blend contains Israeli style couscous, orzo, baby garbanzo Beans and red quinoa.  Gluten free followers can substitute 2 cups instant brown rice and continue prepare as directed, using 1/2 cup rice in each packet instead of 1/3 cup Harvest Grains Blend.

Substitute 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill for 8 fresh basil leaves.
