What’s for dinner? Lemon Garlic Tilapia

With the cost of meat being so high…we’ve been eating a lot more fish!

It’s not only super tasty, but pretty good for you too 😄

I picked up a family pack of tilapia last week, so I had some still in the freezer.

This is what I made:

Ingredients:

4 tilapia fillets

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp butter, melted

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tsp dried parsley flakes

pepper to taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Rinse tilapia fillets under cool water, and pat dry with paper towels.
Place fillets in baking dish. Pour lemon juice over fillets, then drizzle butter on top. Sprinkle with garlic, parsley, and pepper.
Bake in preheated oven until the fish is white and flakes when pulled apart with a fork, about 30 minutes.

I boiled up some chopped carrots and diced potatoes and mashed them up with a bit of butter, milk and garlic powder, and steamed up a pile of spinach to serve alongside. The kids gobbled it up and even stole some of my fish!
