Pack in the Protein

Sorry for being a little MIA lately. I've been dealing with some stuff (as I like to call it) and been pretty busy. I'm here, and still cooking, but just a lot less. Now that the Summer is approaching I am going to try to focus on some light and healthy recipes. To begin, I'm starting with a very simple meal that is packed full of protein and hardly no fat, if any. For dinner last night I made broiled tilapia with tzatziki sauce and sliced tomatoes.
This is almost like a no-recipe recipe. All you need to do is get yourself a tilapia fillet from your closest fresh fish market. Sprinkle the fillet with lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a light drizzle of olive oil. Place it in a baking dish or pan or on tinfoil handmade thingamajig....below is a picture of what I'm talking about.
Place the fillet into the oven about 10 inches below the broiler and broil for about 15 minutes on high. The fish should have turned from translucent to an opaque white. You can flip the fillet after 8 minutes to cook the other side. Now that the fish is cooked place some tzatziki (for recipe click here) on the fish and serve it with a side of sliced tomatoes sprinkled with salt and pepper! That's it! Easy, tasty, and light and healthy!
