Tilapia is so quick and easy to make. Especially, if you don’t even bother to thaw it.
For this meal, I prepped it early in the day and put the pan in the fridge. It only took a few minutes to put together. And at dinner time, all I had to do was turn on the oven and put the pan in to bake.
You could use this prep-fridge-bake system for all kinds of different seasonings, but this time I chose an easy, buttery lemon juice sauce with Dijon mustard, garlic and tarragon.
