Baked Lemon Dill Tilapia

Tilapia is a wonderfully versatile fish – the flavor is mild enough that the taste can be drastically altered depending on how it is prepared.  Usually when I cook tilapia, I like to make it on the stove… but when the days get hot and humid, standing over a hot stove is the LAST thing I want to do! So today I thought I would share a light, easy recipe for baked tilapia! The dill and lemon flavors are fresh and crisp, making this dish perfect for warm weather dining. And best of all? This dish can be prepared in under 25 minutes!
