Easy Broiled Lemon Tilapia

Tilapia Dinner at Chez MoiImage by unprose via Flickr
Not my fish, but will come out equally yummy looking
Hello everyone! I made this quick meal in less than 15 minutes! If you're not familiar with Tilapia it is a great light fish that is easy to flavor and is a favorite in our home. It's price is very affordable with a big bag costing less than $8 on sale at our store. These normally last us at least 2 nights worth of dinner.


Ingredients: Tilapia fillets (2 per person), 1 whole lemon (or equivalent juice), instant brown rice
  1. Thaw fillets according to package directions
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Rinse and pat dry the fillets
  4. Butter a 13x9 baking dish
  5. Arrange the fillets so that they fit but not overlapping a lot
  6. Squeeze the lemon juice and pour over each fillet
  7. Cut the rest of the lemon into slices and place on top of the fish
  8. Bake for 12 mintues or so until the fish flakes easily with for.
  9. In the meantime, boil the instant rice.
  10. Place a bed of rice on a plate or platter, then add the Tilapia
  11. Use the lemon juice from the baking pan to make a quick sauce with melted butter.
  12. Pour over the plate and season.
