Tilapia is a great white fish that is farmed raised making it widely available in restaurants and grocery stores throughout the US. It cooks quickly, and has a nice texture when quickly pan fried. Even doubling this recipe to 6 oz. leaves you another 200 calories for a filling side dish such as Foiled O’Brien; potatoes and peppers steamed in a foil packet.
100 calories per serving
3 oz tilapia
Salt to taste
Lemon pepper to taste (I pile it on!)
Heat a small skillet on medium low and spray with Pam. Place the fish in the pan and sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper. Cook 3 minutes. Gently flip the fish and sprinkle with more salt and lemon pepper. Cook another 3-5 minutes or until fish is done. It is done when the flesh is flaky and opaque rather than translucent.
