So last night for for Dinner I wanted to make something light so I decided on fish! Costco had a 2.5 LB bag of Frozen Tilapia Loins for $14.99, kind of pricey but definitely worth the splurge. I really like that this fish did not smell "fishy" and each loin was in it's own cryovac sealed pouch. I have not had the best luck with cooking fish at home so Joe and I were really surprised oh how yummy this was! The best part is that it is a perfect for our Healthy Eating Plan!
4 Tilapia Loins Thawed
1 TBS of Butter
1-2 Cloves of Garlic Minced
1 TBS of Lemon Pepper Seasoning
(I used the new Weber Seasoning and it was awesome)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Block of Parmesan Cheese to taste
Non Stick Spray
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees
Spray a 9x13 Casserole dish with non stick spray
Take the Tilipia and pat dry with paper towels and place in casserole dish
In a sauce pan melt the 1 TBS of Butter and saute the Garlic (I do this to get rid of that "raw" garlic taste)
Squeeze the entire lemon all over the fish
Sprinkle with the Lemon Pepper Seasoning and Salt and Pepper to Taste
Drizzle the Butter/Garlic Mixture over the Fish
Then take the block of Parmesan Cheese and grate the cheese over the Fish. I used my micro plane to get really fine shreds of the cheese. A little goes a long way. You could substitute grated Parmesan like Kraft.
Bake at 375 degrees or until the fish flakes with a fork
I served this with some Brown Rice and Sautéed Zucchini, Onions, and Tomato's.
One great tip I have for making some yummy brown rice is to add a teaspoon of Chicken Base such as "Better than Bouillon" to the water. It really makes the rice special!
