    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You can purchase lemon pepper at in any grocery store in the spice section, it's also great on veggies and steaks too but really brings out the flavor on fish ;-)

      This is a very tasty way to cook tilapia! (and easy!!) The lemon pepper I use has no salt in it. Make sure salt is NOT an ingredient in yours, because 1 tablespoon might be too much. (or omit added salt). Fish had a nice crispy coating, and browned nicely. Thanks for what will become a regular dish here!
