In the Kitchen with Jason: Lemon-Rosemary Roasted Tilapia

This recipe calls for salmon, but when we went to the store, tilapia was on sale, so we used that instead. The recipe turned out delicious with tilapia.

  • 12 oz. tilapia
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 lemons, 1 and 1/2 thinly sliced, remainder chopped into 4 wedges
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO
  • Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Sprinkle the tilapia with salt and pepper.
  • Set seasoned fish aside.
  • Sprinkle a 9x9 baking dish with rosemary.
  • Spread onions evenly over rosemary.
  • Place fish over the onions in a single layer.
  • Arrange lemon slices over the fish.
    • Your slices will most likely overlap. This is fine.
  • Drizzle EVOO over all the layers in the 9x9 baking dish.
  • Bake the fish for 8 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove lemon from the fish and serve the fish with lemon wedges.
This recipe came from the Dollars to Donuts cookbook.

Please enjoy!

This looks simple but delicious! I'll be traveling soon to visit my family, who are all seafood fans -- so we'll have to try this recipe!
