Highlighted Recipe - Herb Baked Tilapia

Our inspiration for this recipe came from: Paula Deen's Recipe on The Food Network

2 Tilapia Fillets
1/2 t. Salt
1/2 t. Pepper
1 T Basil (we just use our seasoning)
1 t. Oregano (we just use our seasoning)
1 t. Onion Powder
2 minced garlic cloves
3 T olive oil
1 Large Tomato, thinly sliced
1 t. Lemon Juice

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Mix salt, pepper, basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic and olive oil in a small bowl
  • Pour contents over both pieces of tilapia to really marinate all the flavors
  • Arrange tomato slices evenly and drizzle with lemon juice (we like adding the lemon juice even before cooking)
  • Bake 20 - 25 minutes
  • Add more lemon juice and enjoy!
We normally serve this over a bed of rice with some extra veggies on the side. Typically we make a little extra of the olive oil mixture and mix that into our rice with some lemon juice and it's amazing! Our daughter isn't the biggest fish eater, but this is one dish she absolutely loves!
