  1. Perfect receipe for a busy night. It came together very quickly andd turned out delicious! My 19 months old toddler approved it, too. I broiled it for about 7 min. The only modification I made was adding more garlic, because why not? I Served the tilapia over chopped salad with gauda and apple Vinegrette. Thank you, Gina!

  2. I love all of your recipes, but I especially love how quick and easy this was to prep! Definitely an easy meal for a busy night!

    So how long did you end up broiling it? I'm not very good at cooking fish, but I want to get better because it's so good and healthy!
