Paleo Tilapia Smothered inTomato, Jalapeno and Avocado

4-5 Tilapia Filets
15-20 Grape tomatoes chopped depending on size, any tomato will do but this sweet flavor goes well with the jalapeno
1-2 jalapenos diced
(mix the diced tomato and jalapeno in a small bowl)
1 avocado cut into slices set aside
pepper to taste
(Optional- Chipotle pepper or a dash of Cayenne on each filet when adding the pepper)
Foil large enough to fully wrap filets and toppings tightly
1 lemon cut into wedges set aside

Heat grill to high
Place 1 filet on each piece of foil and season with black pepper
Top with tomato/jalapeno mix
wrap tightly
Reduce heat to low and grill until the largest piece flakes easily in the center, time will depend on thickness and size of the filets.  The picture shows a very large tilapia filet.  Turn once while grilling, generally if the liquid in the foil is boiling when you open one, it is probably done. 
Serve topped with avocado slices and a lemon wedge
