Healthy Tilapia Recipe

Do you want a simple, quick and relatively healthy tilapia recipe for dinner? Try this healthy baked lemon butter tilapia I made in under 30 minutes. This is such an easy recipe that can be served with fresh roasted cauliflower or cauliflower fried rice. I love baked potatoes so I added to my dinner to complete the meal. Other suggestions would be fresh garden salad, brussel sprouts, quinoa, simple oven roasted potatoes, or basmati rice.
