This was a quick and easy recipe that packed a lot of flavor, perfect for a rainy Friday evening. I keep a bag of tilapia fillets in the freezer, so this is something that I could throw together at any time. I really liked the tanginess of the lemon on the fish, and it was perfectly tender. It was a big hit with my husband and toddler! I served this with Couscous with Sautéed Ramps and Tomato.
