Lemon Pepper Fish

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

This is really more of a meal idea rather than a recipe, but this is one of those quick and easy meals that we eat almost weekly. It takes 15-20 minutes total!

1 tbsp Olive Oil
Tilapia Fillet(s)
1-2 tsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Add olive oil to a sauté pan on medium heat. Lay frozen fillet in the pan, don’t let the fillets overlap but the sides can touch. On medium heat cook the fish until it looks thawed then sprinkle on the lemon pepper seasoning (I really don't measure it, I just sprinkle until everything looks peppered). Continue cooking until the sides of the fillets become transparent (around 5 minutes-depending on thickness of fillet) and then flip the fillets. Sprinkle the other side with the lemon pepper seasoning and cook until fish is white and flakey (around 5 minutes).

You can flip the fish another couple times to brown the outside but the more you flip it the more it will fall apart on you. I always cut one of the thickest fillets open to make sure it is white and flakey all the way through before taking it off of the heat and serving.
