Baked Tilapia

Happy Fat Tuesday! While my recipe is a little on the lean side, keep it in your arsenal for tomorrow (Ash Wednesday) and your upcoming Friday Fish Fries. 

4 tilapia filets, frozen
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lay out your tilapia in a baking dish or on a foil-covered cookie tray and sprinkle with freshly chopped onion. Stir your lemon juice and butter together in a small dish, then pour evenly over your fish. (The Type A perfectionist in me strives to cover every square inch of fish.) Salt and pepper to taste.

Stick the fish in the oven for 30 minutes at the initial temperature, and then kick it up to broil for 10 to 15 minutes. That last stretch will make the fish a little bit crispier if you leave it in long enough. At this point, keep checking your oven to make sure that it isn't too wimpy or to crispy for your liking. It serves four, or reheats nicely for you to eat later in the week.
