Lemon-Dill Tilapia (Joy)


4 fresh tilapia fillets
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
parchment paper or foil
2 lemons, sliced
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 tbsp fresh dill
2 tbsp fresh parsley
2 tbsp butter
** I use dried herbs--works pretty well that way!


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.
Cut parchment paper or foil into 4 (13 x 9 inch) rectangles. Place 3 lemon slices crosswise in center of 1 parchment rectangle. Top with 1 fillet. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, fillets, and rectangles.
Sprinkle fillets with carrot, dill, and parsley. Top each fillet with 1/2 tbsp butter.
Fold 1 side of parchment or foil over fillets, tuck excess under fillets, sealing all edges and pressing folds to form a crease.
Bake at 375 for 20 - 25 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Serve immediately.

We had rice and green beans as a side. It was a nice healthy meal. :)
