Baked Tilapia + Veggies & Rice



This is a recipe that my boss passed along to me several years ago.  It's a go-to meal when we're short on time in the evenings but, still need a home cooked meal.  Paired with veggies & rice, it's filling but, doesn't make you feel miserable afterwards either.  For dinner this evening I chose cut green beans & a new (to us) brown rice & barley grain blend to go along with the Tilapia.

Groceries:
- Tilapia filets
- Lemon or Lime juice
- Lemon Pepper seasoning
- Choice of veggies
- Choice of rice

Baked Tilapia

1. Start by defrosting the tilapia in a sink full of hot water.  It usually only takes about 5-10 minutes.
2. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil so that you can close it around the tilapia.
3. Once the tilapia is defrosted, space them out evenly on the cookie sheet.  Squirt a little lemon/lime juice on each & then sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning.

4. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 and then flip.  Add a little more lemon/lime juice and lemon pepper & bake for another 10 minutes.

Green Beans

A lot of times we cook canned green beans just for the ease factor.  For 2 cans of green beans I add 2 chicken bullion cubes.  Once they are dissolved, add some cumin seasoning & mix together.  Let the seasonings cook together for a few minutes & done!

We normally pick up a couple packs of Uncle Ben's 90 second rice, Roasted Chicken flavor to go with the tilapia.  For tonight, we used a new brown rice & barley mix I found in the rice section at Central Market, that was really good!  This & Quinoa might be a better option if you're looking to go a healthier route.



What ways to you cook Tilapia?
