Lemon Herb Broiled Tilapia


4 tilapia fillets

lemon flavored olive oil (or olive oil+  crystallized lemon like True Lemon)

McCormicks Lemon Herb Seasoning (different than lemon pepper)

Freshly ground sea salt and coarse ground pepper

Brush fillets with olive oil, coating well.  Flip over and brush other side with olive oil.  Sprinkle with seasonings and broil on high for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

I served with peas/steamed broccoli and baked potatoes.  I had a baked sweet potato.  Even my father loved this!  (And if you’ve read the about me, you know that is saying something.)

Super easy/quick/healthy meal!!


Salmon with Citrus-Balsamic Vinaigrette


I think this looks really good.  You may not think the dressing would be good, but if it’s anything like Chili’s Citrus Balsamic it will be great!  I’m not sure when I’ll get to fix this, since I’m the only one who really likes fish, but when I do, I’ll let you know how it is.  If you try it, post and let us know!




1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon grainy or Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon finely minced shallot
1 small clove garlic, peeled and forced through a press
2 teaspoons each finely chopped parsley, basil and mint
1/8 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1-1/4 pounds salmon fillet

Place the orange juice, vinegar, mustard, oil, shallot, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a jar. Close lid and shake well to blend.

Place salmon in a foil-lined pan and spoon a little of the vinaigrette over the fish. Bake in a preheated 450-degree F. oven 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until cooked through.

Spoon the remaining vinaigrette over each serving of fish.
