Oven Baked Tilapia with Lemon


***Wow...it's been over a week since my last post...I apologize! It seems like I've been making several of my tried and true recipes for dinner this past week. I made the Lemon Butter Grouper, Oven Roasted Chicken & Pasta, among a few others. I even made a second batch of the fresh French Baguettes....YUM. I'm also extremely excited about this month's Daring Bakers Challenge. I cannot post anything about it until March 30th, so I guess I'll have to keep quiet until then. I will only say that it was a huge hit on Easter...I can't wait to share it!***
***But, now on to the recipe at-hand....
There's a recipe on the side of the Bisquick box that I've used before called "Oven Baked Chicken." I remembered it being really good, and the other night I was looking for something quick and easy to do with tilapia. I saw this recipe and thought, "Why not?!" I jazzed it up a little bit by adding lemon juice, since I was working with fish. The end result was quite scrumptious! Brad enjoyed it too. You can't beat it for a super simple dinner.***

Ingredients:
4 tilapia fillets
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2/3 cup Original Bisquick mix
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 lemons

Directions:
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter in an ovenproof baking dish in the oven.

Stir together Bisquick mix, paprika, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and pepper; coat tilapia. Place in heated dish.

Bake approximately 10 minutes, and then carefully flip tilapia. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes, or until fish easily flakes. Drizzle freshly squeezed lemon juice on the top of eash fillet. Serve immediately!

Made Oven Baked Tilapia with Lemon for dinner last night. It was a big hit with my bride, my daughter loved it, and my picky-eater son said "I'd eat that again." Big win Celeste! Thank you.
