Cilantro lime tilapia

I am really not good at “writing” recipes, but here’s a go at a yummy fish dish I cooked last night.

Tilapia fillets (fresh or frozen)
Lemon and lime juice
Cilantro (either dried or fresh)
Cajun seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Thaw frozen tilapia fillets in lukewarm water for about 10 minutes. Cover bottom glass baking dish with cooking spray. (I use olive oil cooking spray.) Place thawed fish in baking dish and lightly coat with butter. Garnish with salt, Cajun seasoning, and cilantro. Squirt generous amount lemon and lime juice over fish (more lime than lemon – probably about 2 tablespoons per fillet, and a little less lemon). Bake at 375 for about 12-15 minutes or until meat is flakey.

Suggested Sides: Wild rice, salad, corn, green beans, or whatever you like!

VERY tasty!
