I don’t know about you but sometimes I forget to read all of a recipe, it always seems that this happens anytime a recipe involves a marinade. Dinner time will come around and I will pull out my recipe and read that I should have marinaded the tilapia for 4 hours, and of course at 5:00 who has time for that.
When that happens I usually am short on time and need to improvise. This is exactly what happened on Tuesday night when I planned to make the honey lime tilapia on my menu plan. So I did what I do anytime I forget to marinade fish.
I present you with my no fail, no plan super simple fish dish (say that 3 times fast).
What you need:
Your favorite seafood seasoning (lemon pepper or old bay will work)
white wine (any I usually use the bottom of a bottle)
Preheat oven to 400
In a 8 X 12 Pyrex dish add olive oil about 3 turns around the dish.
Next add white wine about 2 turns of the pan.
Chop about a tablespoon of butter into medium sized hunks and scatter about the pan.
Place fish filet’s in pan
Sprinkle fish with seasoning
Take lemon and cut into quarters, squeeze 2 quarters over fish, place all 4 quarters in pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.

I served this with sauteed spinach and brown rice. I topped the rice with a little bit of the white wine and butter sauce from the bottom of the pan. It was easy, delicious and my husband had no clue that this wasn’t the meal I had planned to make all along.
