Delicious! I served it with rice pilaf and zucchini drizzled with the lemon sauce.

This was DELICIOUS. Cut this into 1/4 for just my husband and I. I actually forgot the parsley but I didn't even notice. The freshly grated lemon peel really makes the spices pop. I think this has become our favorite tilapia recipe now!

My husband and I eat fish a couple of time a week. This is a fast and flavorful meal. It's super easy to prepare. Tilapia is a mild flavored fish and the seasonings complement the fish and don't over power it. A perfect blend.

I'm not a huge fish fan, but am trying to eat more. This recipe will definitely help with that goal. It was fabulous! Light, fresh, bright flavor. Easy to prepare, I did need to cook it longer than the directions stated, but I always tend to do that with fish so it may just be my preference.

Simple and delicious! Done the entire dish in 30 minutes and my kids ate it up. The only ingredient I had to purchase was a fresh lemon but the zest really added something. I wouldn't change it and would definitely make it again.
