I have always loved seafood, especially salmon and tilapia, but have never cooked it until recently.  I’ve been trying to make healthier dishes lately, and its always a plus when they are easy as well.  This dish blew me away.  Prep time and cook time COMBINED…it took 15 minutes.  Combined!!! Like I said…I’m in love.

The lemon pepper parmesan crust was so flavorful and simple.  I served it with brown rice (steamed in a bag in the microwave…bam!) and it was a delicious, EASY, and healthy dinner.  I can’t wait to make this time and time again in the future.  Busy seems to be a theme lately.

I adapted this recipe from one of my very favorite blogs, Taste and Tell.  She used a different spice combination, and it looks delicious as well.  All of her recipes are fantastic…check out her recipe HERE.
