Tomato Garlic Tilapia

After 6 days of the stomach bug, it was nice to make a real meal again! Tilapia seemed the perfect, light comfort food for our newly healthy tummies. I make this meal in foil packets for each serving, so below are ingredients and instructions for a single serving. Obviously multiply by however many people you wish to feed. 🙂

  • 3 oz tilapia filet
  • 1/2 tsp of butter
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 a chopped tomato
  • Pepper and old bay seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 425. Place tilapia on tinfoil and top with all other ingredients. Wrap tinfoil around the tilapia and cook for about 20 minutes.

And yes I had mine with a side of onion rings. Because they cook at the same temperature. 😉



Tilapia with Veggies

I have always been a big fan of seafood, but for a very long time I was scared of cooking it. But it’s not scary! In fact, here is one of the easiest dishes I’ve made. And besides 2 tilapia filets, you likely have all the ingredients in your house already. All you need is:

2 tilapia filets

16 oz bag of frozen cauliflower and broccoli

1/2 tablespoon of butter

Pepper, garlic salt and old bay seasoning

And here’s all you do:

  1. Preheat oven at 425
  2. Spray a baking dish with non stick and put 2 tilapia filets in it
  3. Put butter on top of fillets and then surround with veggies
  4. Season with pepper,garlic salt and old bay
  5. Cook for 25-30 minutes

So very easy, so very yummy. My favorite thing about it is it tastes so light! I was completely full when done with my meal, but didn’t have that yucky overly full feeling that I often get after meals that are heavy on the carbs.
