- Open sheets and place equal amounts of shallots, bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and lemon slices on one side of each sheet.
- Place tilapia fillets on top of vegetables.
- In a small bowl, whisk together oil, mustard, thyme, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper.
- Spread mustard mixture on fish.
- Fold empty half off parchment sheet over tilapia and vegetables and crimp them shut.
