Baked Tilapia

Food and friendship seem to go hand and hand, and this post reflects just that... a new partnership with Seafood at Home. They are true foodies at heart with focus on recipes that are quick, easy and most of all healthy and delicious. You might catch one of my recipes on their website which I'm very excited about.


It got me thinking about all the different ways to enjoy fish. I'll start by telling you a number of reasons why I love the frozen fish from Aldi:

1. It's affordable.

2. It's great quality and sustainably sourced.

3. It's extremely convenient. It comes in individual portions I can take out as needed. It defrosts within 15 minutes if you use the "quick thaw" instructions.

4. It cooks quickly.

5. High protien, Zero Points on WW.

6. It's versatile, delicious and satisfying.


For this recipe, I used the Fremont brand Tilapia. The light mayo used in this recipe provides a similar flavor to tartar sauce, so it works perfectly with the fish. The side dish shown is diced potatoes with peppers and onions. You can find the recipe for the Potatoes, Peppers and Onions here.


Recipe makes 2 servings (4 pieces of fish). Serving size is 2 pieces (or 6 oz). WW SmartPoints and nutrition information excludes side dishes shown in the photo.
