Lemon Rosemary Tilapia

Buying fresh herbs at the grocery store is not cheap, and being the frugal person I am, I'm always determined to use them up before they go bad. As a result, you can expect to see a few different rosemary recipes over the next few weeks!

I've discovered recently that I really love the taste and flavor of rosemary...I think it's grown on me. My mom makes some great rosemary spiced nuts that my dad always goes crazy for. I always liked them, but they were never my favorite. I think if I tried them now I'd have a hard time staying away!

This fish was so simple to prepare but it tasted great. We ate this fish with green beans and roasted spaghetti squash. It was a "great meal", to quote Ryan :)

Lemon Rosemary Tilapia

-2 tilapia filets, thawed if frozen
-2 tablespoons of lemon juice (I'd use a fresh lemon next time, but I didn't have one on hand)
-1 rosemary branch, chopped into small pieces
-Garlic powder, coarse salt, and pepper, to taste

1. Place each tilapia filet on a piece of foil.
2. Brush lemon juice on both sides of the filet.
3. Sprinkle with desired amount of garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
4. Top with rosemary.

5. Fold foil around fish.

6. Grill for about 10 minutes.
7. Unwrap and enjoy!
