Lemon Garlic Tilapia  Sheet Pan Dinner

I picked up some “Fresh Never Frozen” tilapia at Aldi this week. Their packages were all right around 3/4ths lb, so I ended up using roughly 3 lbs to feed my large family. This lemon garlic tilapia sheet pan dinner is fantastic paired with roasted summer squash and zucchini for a healthy meal that your family is sure to love. Toss the vegetables with some avocado oil. Throw on the sheet pan with the tilapia then sprinkle your seasonings on before tossing in the 425 degree oven.

What to eat with tilapia that is healthy?

To keep the meal healthy, roast some vegetables tossed in avocado oil to go along with it like I do here. Brown rice is also a good option. You don’t want to load it down with loads of pasta or heavy cream sauces that will negate its’ healthiness.

Can you meal prep fish?

Yes and no. Fish has a shelf life of 3 to 4 days in the fridge. You need to make it top priority of your meal prep options. Alternately, you can freeze it up to a month. Do take great care to make sure it remains cold at all times. No one wants to get sick after they attempted to save time by meal prepping.

Is tilapia good for weight loss?

Tilapia is loaded with protein which helps keep you full for long periods. This enables you to go longer between meals which helps you lose weight. The short answer is yes. Fish is a great addition to any weight loss plan.

Is baked tilapia good for you?

Baked anything is always better than fried. Frying in oil adds unnecessary calories to your meal. Baking the tilapia helps keep it healthy and seals in the amazing flavors. If you’re looking for a healthy way to prepare tilapia then baking it is the way to go.
