This recipe is one of my favorite easy meals. I usually keep tilapia in the freezer. It defrosts super quickly, so this is also great for a quick dinner.
- 5 pieces Tilapia
- 2 roma tomatoes (cut in 1/4 inch slices)
- 1/2 red onion (cut in thin 1 inch pieces)
- 1 lemon (cut in 1/4 inch slices, reserve 1/3 of lemon for squeezing)
- 1.5 cups cooked brown rice
- Seasoning: Tajin, Trader Joes Everyday Seasoning, Trader Joe’s Lemon Pepper Salt, Red Pepper Flakes
- Coconut oil spray
- Soy Sauce
- Dressing of your choice (I used balsamic vinaigrette)
- Sandwich bags
- 3 tupperware
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray foil covered baking sheet with coconut oil. Place tilapia evenly across the sheet.
Layer tomato slices on top of tilapia pieces. Spread onions evenly across fish and foil.
Season to your taste, I like to make a thick coating of seasoning over all the layers. Place 1 lemon slice on each piece of fish.
Bake for 25 minutes or until tilapia is baked through and vegetables are slightly caramelized.
In tupperware: layer 1/2 brown rice, sprinkle on soy sauce.
Add 1.5 pieces of fish and vegetables to each tupperware.
Put a handful of lettuce into a sandwich baggie and place in your tupperware.
When ready to eat: remove lettuce and microwave rice and fish for 1.5 mins (or until warm). Add back lettuce. Add dressing. Cover and shake your tupperware. Eat!
Sandwich bags are my FAVORITE for meal prep. I don’t like my food to touch before I’m ready to eat it (I’m weird). Plus, I really like to keep things from getting soggy and this makes it so you don’t have to use multiple tupperware if one item needs to be re-warmed. They are also super inexpensive. Get some!!
You can add all sorts of veggies to this when you bake it! In the past, I’ve also done bell peppers. I’ve also sautéed kale separately and eaten this as a dinner instead of having it over lettuce.
