Lemon Pepper Tilapia

This recipe is ridiculously easy and so healthy for you!  My family loves this!  I think it's great because it's healthy, fast and so much cheaper than eating out!  I buy Tilapia loins at Costco.  They are frozen and individually wrapped.  The bag has 8 pieces of fish in it and costs around $15.  They only take about 15 minutes to defrost, and 6 or 7 minutes to cook, so they're really fast!

McCormick's Lemon & Pepper Seasoning

If using frozen tilapia, follow the defrosting instructions on the bag.  In your oven, place your rack about 4 or 5 inches from the broiler.  Turn your broiler on High and let your oven heat up for 4 or 5 minutes.  (My oven instructions say to keep the oven door open 7 or 8 inches while broiling.  Check your instructions before beginning.)  Spray a broiler pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Put it in your oven while it's heating up for about 1 minute, so it's nice and hot.  Pull out the hot broiler pan and place tilapia on it.  Generously season fish with McCormick's Lemon & Pepper Seasoning.  Place it back in the oven and let it cook for 3 - 4 minutes.  Pull it out of the oven and turn the fish over.  Generously season the other side of the fish.  Put it back in the oven and cook for another 3 minutes.  Enjoy!

Note:  Some Lemon Pepper seasonings are not gluten free.  Check first before using!
