Line a piece of foil with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray. Place the tilapia fillet in the center.
Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper and top with some sliced onion and garlic.
Add 4 or 5 thin strips of red pepper and some fresh thyme and a quick drizzle of olive oil.
Practice your gift wrapping skills by folding down the long end of the parchment and then tucking the short ends under. Fold up the foil around so that it’s sealed well. Put on a moderately hot barbecue and grill for 4-6 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and serve. Open carefully as there will be steam.
