Lemon Pepper Tilapia

I freeze everything. I mean EVERYTHING. It’s hard to shop on a budget, for two people and not max out your freezer space….at least I think so. So when I went to Stop & Shop and saw frozen Tilapia was buy one get one free obviously I pounced on it. Now our freezer is a sliding avalanche of frozen fruit, veggies, meals, meats, bread and more. It’s out of control. In fact, it’s actually scary opening up the door because you never know what’s going to come sliding out at you. Gotta have quick reflexes in this kitchen!

With all this Tilapia stock piled I figured it was time to cook some up. I decided to make a Lemon Pepper baked Tilapia from some of the ingredients I had laying around. Give it a try and see what you think!

Lemon Pepper Tilapia

2 tilapia fillets
2 tbl olive oil
2 tbl lemon juice
4 garlic cloves; minced
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp parsley (I used dried and fresh)
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a glass baking dish and place fillets in it. Sprinkle them lightly with salt and pepper.IMG_1365

In a pan heat olive oil to medium heat and add garlic. Cook garlic until soft. Lower heat and add lemon juice. Continue to cook for about a minute.IMG_1366

Pour olive oil-lemon mixture over fillets. Sprinkle fillets with lemon pepper seasoning and parsley. Cook in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.   IMG_1367
