Tilapia With Creamy Lemon Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Margie99

I got this from one of those recipe cards at the grocery store. It uses italian dressing and some cream cheese. I included the fat free ingredients but you could easily use the regular versions. You could also sub in any white fish fillet for the tilapia.

Best fish I ever tasted but I omitted the Italian dressing. Not by choice but because I didn't have it in my fridge. I added sugar to balance the tang in the lemon, spoon of butter and a dollop of mayo. Unbelievable how great it taste! It's like an angel came and cooked it for me.
