Number of Servings: 2


    2 fillets of fresh tilapia (6-8oz)
    1 lemon
    Olive Oil
    A few sprigs of fresh thyme
    2 turns of pepper
    Cooking Tools: Baking Pan, Parchment Paper


1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Place fresh tilapia on 8" squares of parchment paper (one fillet per parchment sheet).

3. Cut 4 slices from the lemon and set aside. Squeeze the juice from the rest of the lemon over the tilapia.

4. Sprinkle 1/2 a pinch of table salt over each of the fillets. Omitted to reduce sodium

5. Drizzle olive oil over the fillets. Don't douse them, but make sure that you get the surface of the fillets covered.

6. Take your sprigs of thyme and place them over the fillets, spaced equally apart. I like a lot of thyme, but if you're less of a fan I would suggest putting a little less.

7. Take the 4 lemon slices you sliced earlier and place two on top of each fillet, equally spaced.

8. Make one turn of fresh pepper over each fillet.

9. Fold the parchment paper around the fillets in a packet so that it does not open on its own. Place the seam face down in a pan and make sure the two fillets are evenly spaced out in the pan.

10. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes, then remove from parchment paper and put on a plate. Goes great with asparagus.
