Lately I've been focused on improving my diet and expanding my knowledge of cooking and how to use healthier methods for cooking foods that are good for you. One of my goals has been to get more protein into my diet and I've been learning and experimenting with using dried beans and recently trying different ways to cook fish and chicken that are easy and simple to do in my day to day dinners. So far, I've been enjoying blanching chicken for homemade protein packed salads with boiled eggs along with baking tilapia, salmon, and chicken more often. The best part about cooking tilapia and other fish is how there are so many ways to season them and cook them without losing their nutritional value. This recipe is my current favorite way to make tilapia other than pan frying it as someone who really loves cooking with garlic and lemon juice. If you're someone who is also looking to add more healthy fish recipes into your diet, give this recipe a try and feel free to experiment with different flavors in the future!
