Lemon Tilapia & Asparagus

Lemon Tilapia Ingredients:
  • 4 tilapia fillets (this was 1.75 pounds for me)
  • 6 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1.5 tsp of sea salt flakes
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • ¼ tsp herbs de provence
  • ¼ tsp garlic salt

  • ¼ tsp lemon zest
  • a few thinly sliced lemon slices
Lemon Asparagus Ingredients:
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the tilapia fillets into a large pan and top with 6 Tbs of lemon juice.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the 1.5 tsp of sea salt flakes, ¼ tsp ground black pepper, ¼ tsp thyme, ¼ tsp herbs de provence, and ¼ tsp garlic salt together. Evenly sprinkle the seasoning on top of the tilapia fillets.
  4. Sprinkle the pine nuts onto the tilapia and throughout the pan.
  5. Top the fillets with the lemon slices and sprinkle the lemon zest onto them. Set the pan aside.
  6. Next, cover a cookie sheet in tin foil.
  7. Cut the bottom hard parts of the asparagus off (about 1-2 inches). Lay the asparagus evenly across the cookie sheet.
  8. Evenly pour 1 Tbs of olive oil on top of the asparagus. Then, evenly pour 2 Tbs of lemon juice on top of the asparagus.
  9. Salt and pepper the asparagus to taste.
  10. Then, put the cookie sheet full of the asparagus onto the lower rack of the oven. Put the pan with the tilapia in it on the top rack of the oven.
