Tilapia may be a simple fish, but it makes for a quick dinner!
Don’t have time to cook? You only think that because you haven’t tried a sheet pan recipe yet!
Fish is always a great choice for a light and healthy meal. For this particular sheet pan meal I chose tilapia filets. Veggies are of course a must so I selected two- corn and zucchini. No extra carbs added, so this dinner does not have the accompaniment of rice or anything else. The whole idea is to cook everything on one pan for simplicity and ease. It also keeps the meal low calorie in this case.
Start by cutting the zucchini in to rounds. Arrange the vegetables on a greased baking sheet and drizzle with some melted butter and lemon. Lay the prepared tilapia filets on top and sprinkle everything with the seasonings. For my herbs I chose oregano and thyme, then paprika as the spice.
Bake at 400F for 15 minutes. Make sure the fish flakes with a fork so you know it is completely cooked through. Remove and serve warm! Now how easy was that? Oh, and the best part is the clean up is practically nothing!

I started eating healthy on my own a few years ago, around the time I started the blog. Shortly after I discovered the program 21 Day Fix and it COMPLETELY opened my eyes to clean eating. I learned how to control carbs, cut processed foods, not be so obsessed with sugar and so much more…. including how to become a meal prep pro! I now coach people through this program.
