Terrific Tilapia

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef Luvfood

The tastiest, and easiest way to prepare tilapia...even the "fish snubber" will eat this dish! And it's very diet friendly too! I always serve mine with some tartar sauce on the side.

Very easy and delicious. No need to thaw out fish simply prepare frozen fillets and put into oven. Definitely a keeper.
