This Lemon-Garlic Tilapia has become a favorite of mine. It's fast, easy and light! When you pair this tilapia with brown rice and steamed veggies you are looking at a low calorie, low fat meal that "in my house" means... there's room for dessert! Yay! Here's all you'll need:
Lemon Garlic Tilapia

4 Tilapia Fillets (about 3/4 lb) ($4.43)
2 Lemons ($1.00)
