Baked Tilapia Dinner Recipe

One thing we've really been working on over here is eating healthy, whole foods. We are trying to shy away from processed foods in general and steer more towards a "whole food, plant based diet". (Thanks Food Matters!) 

My favorite thing to do is to take regular recipes and make them healthy so that is what I'll be sharing here on the blog! If I take a recipe from pinterest I'll always share the original link.

At some point I'll start photographing the process and making it all pretty but for right now I'm going to just focus getting the recipes down so stay with me.

Tilapia is one of those fish that is just so easy to make. I'm not a big fan of salmon so if the recipe isn't perfect I'm probably not going to eat it. Tilapia on the other hand is so fresh and light it almost always comes out great. 

We love making it in the summer. It makes a perfect light dinner that won't bog you down.
I usually serve it with some rice and freshly steamed veggies.

4- 4 oz tilapia fillets
1 tablespoon (ish) of melted butter
Lemon Juice
Adam's Seasoning (or your favorite Cajun seasoning)
Nature's Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper 

Preheat the oven to 375

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, spray with nonstick cooking spray. 

Spread some melted butter on the fillets. 

Sprinkle seasoning on the fillets to taste. I used the Nature's Seasoning and Adam's Seasoning as the base so I probably used 1/4 of a teaspoon of each on each fillet and then just a small sprinkling of the other spices. 

Bake for 20-25 or until the tilapia is flaky and no longer translucent. 

Squirt some lemon juice on top before serving.

This is a really easy recipe and it can be adapted so many ways.
