Grapefruit Tilapia

I’m sure you can tell by now that my kind of cooking is generally easy, healthy and cheap(ish). By easy, I mean, I like making meals that don’t take long to throw together. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to spend hours cooking in the kitchen but, with a newborn, I don’t have many extra hours in my days. I’m sure most of you don’t either so I hope my blog can help you make the most of cooking with the time you have!

Also, sorry for my lack of posts last week. We got busy! Baby girl had to do some physical therapy which, let me tell you, baby physical therapy is quite possibly the cutest thing EVER. And, yes, this may be because I think my child is the most adorable thing in the world — yep, she’s even cuter than your kid, whoever you are ;).

On that note, I’m going to be shooting for 3 posts a week from now on. That number could grow or dwindle in the future but that’s the current goal. Thanks for reading!

Okay, so this recipe is super easy, delicious and is ready in no time!

Ingredients for 4 servings [Note: we had about 3 servings using 4 fillets so my pictures don’t completely match the ingredients/directions to make 4 servings. Tilapia tends to not be super filling so below I’m going to suggest about 1.5 small fillets for one serving.]

–6 small tilapia fillets

–3 Tbsp olive oil

— juice from 1/2 large grapefruit or 1 whole small grapefruit

–3 Tbsp dill

–pinch of salt and pepper (per fillet)

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place washed tilapia fillets in a glass casserole dish (I layered the fillets so they would fit). Drizzle 3 Tbsp olive oil on top of fillets — 1/2 Tbsp per fillet. Squeeze grapefruit juice over fish. Use enough juice to almost (but not quite) cover the fish. Sprinkle dill, salt and pepper on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes nicely. And, enjoy!

By the way, is it ‘filet of fish’ or ‘fillet of fish’? I always thought one ‘L’ but spell check tells me otherwise. I’m learning so much from blogging!

More pictures for your viewing pleasure. Wow, now that I’m looking at this, that is some serious dill. I guess we like dill more than I realized…add more than I suggested above if you want to go a little crazy ;).
