Hi everyone, happy Friday! I have another new and easy dinner recipe for you today!
I decided it was high time to share a new fish recipe. Although my Blackened Tilapia is still a favorite, sometimes I like to keep things light and fresh with lemon. This recipe only takes about 5 minutes under the broiler and needs about 30 minutes to marinate prior to that. Just enough time to cook up some roasted veggies!
Begin by sprinkling both sides of the tilapia with sea salt and pepper.
Next, either place the tilapia in a glass baking dish or in a gallon sized bag. Pour 1/2 cup of lemon juice all over tilapia.
Top the tilapia with 1 tsp. of minced garlic – 1/2 tsp. on each piece! Allow the fish to marinate for 30 minutes and flip halfway through if you’re marinating in a baking dish. Be sure to keep the fish in the refrigerator while it marinates! Also, I like to put the garlic back on top of the fish after I flip it so it cooks down into the meat. You can do this or just wait until you flip to add the garlic – whatever works for you!
While the fish marinates, preheat your broiler. After 30 minutes, place the fish under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until the fish is flaky. No need to flip!
Serve with rice or whole wheat couscous to soak up the extra juice. We enjoyed ours with a side salad and Lemon and Parmesan Whole Wheat Couscous– recipe soon!
I hope you all enjoy this easy and fresh summer meal. Have a wonderful weekend!
