Super Simple Pantry Tilapia

“This recipe is very simple to make and uses items that are found in most kitchens. Tilapia is a very mild white fish that can be found in many grocery stores, and often times on sale. If you aren't sure you'd like to try it or you can't find it, you can subtitute another very mild white fish. I think tilapia works best because it's a very light fish flavor that takes on whatever you season it with. I recommend a side of green veggie, like broccoli or brussel sprouts, and a mild wild and long grain rice pilaf. Healthy and delicious!”
