Ginger Lemon Pepper Tilapia

img_20160908_132408Nothing better than light and flaky fish with good flavor and texture. As you can tell from my recipes I like EASY, FRESH, and DELICIOUS. So if I can make a recipe with a few shortcuts that still keep it healthy and fresh tasting, I’m all for it! I discovered Schwan’s LiveSmart line of products and LOVE them! Most of them have pretty good nutritional numbers and with our very necessary cardiac and diabetic new diet we are religiously following, these products most certainly make my life in the kitchen a lot easier. This is my favorite way to make their Tilapia. Hope you enjoy the flavor AND the convenience!

You will need:

  • 1- 17.6 oz. pkg of Schwan’s frozen tilapia loins (Or your brand of choice)
  • 1-TBS Lemon Zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon (save 1/2 for serving)
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper (or 1/2 tsp if you like a little spice)
  • 1 tsp Olde Thompson orange lemon pepper grinder seasoning (or brand of your choice)
  • 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes (I prefer Simply Organic herbs and spices in my recipes)
  • 1 tsp ground Ginger
  • Olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Spray a 13×9 baking dish with cooking spray (preferably olive oil spray)

Remove Tilapia from plastic wrappers and arrange in baking dish in a single layer

Drizzle fish with a generous amount of olive oil

Evenly sprinkle remaining ingredients over fish and keep one half of lemon juice to the side for servingimg_20160817_153542257

Bake covered tightly with foil for approx. 45 min (ovens will vary)

Uncover and check doneness (fish should be flaky and white, bake an additional 10-15 min if needed)

Drizzle with more olive oil and lemon juice to serve.. Easy right??? 🙂


Serve with my Tomato & Pepper Cashew Brown Rice or any sides of your choice
