Stir 1/2 cup of dry whole-wheat couscous with 2 tbsp water in a small bowl. Divide couscous among parchment sheets. Divide vegetable mixture and make a nest with each portion on top of couscous. Lay 1 fillet over each portion of vegetables. Discard marinade.
- Season tilapia with fresh pepper. Slice a lemon into 12 1/4-in. slices. Place 3 on each fillet, overlapping to fit. Fold each piece of parchment in half over the fillets.
