Garlic Lime Tilapia

Happy Thursday, everybody!  As my workweek winds down my life tends to get busier so I always try to have some basic ingredients on hand to throw a quick dinner together when I don't feel like cooking.  Tilapia is one of the things that is always in my freezer.  It's a very mild fish so you can do just about any kind of sauce on it and it will taste yummy.  It's also fast cooking.  So last week when I came home and wanted a quick dinner I pulled some tilapia out of my freezer and had dinner ready in 20 minutes.  How awesome is that?!


4 tilapia fillets
2 cloves of garlic
1 lime
1 tbsp vegetable oil


If your tilapia filets are frozen start by sticking them in the microwave to defrost.  While that's happening peel the garlic cloves and slice them thinly.  In a bowl mix the garlic with the oil and the zest and juice of the lime.  Place the tilapia filets on a baking sheet and pour the garlic lime sauce on top.  Cook under a broiler on high for 10-12 minutes until the fish is browned and flakes apart with a fork.

Now that you've seen mine, what's your go-to quick dinner?


  1. Looks so much better then just throwing the fish in the pan, cooking it, and reheating it for lunch!!! Thanks girl

    1. You're welcome! I love cooking fish under the broiler because you don't have to use butter or oil like you do on the stove!
