  • Pre-heat grill to medium hot heat.
  • Tear off a piece of aluminum foil big enough to wrap each filet.
  • In a small bowl combine shallots and garlic
  • Place filet in the middle of the foil sheet and spoon two teaspoons of the shallot garlic mixture and two tablespoons of the diced tomatoes on the top of each filet.
  • Sprinkle a little thyme, salt and pepper over the top of the tomatoes.
  • Fold the top of the foil up around the filets. Fold ends up to make an air tight packet.
  • Place foil packets on grill and cook until done. About 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
