Easy Peasy Tilapia

I am no cook. Sometimes I don't feel like standing in the kitchen for an hour preparing the most delicious meal ever. Sometimes I just want to sit back, read a book, or watch ridiculous amount of tv shows. Dinner needs to happen, and even though I don't want to cook at times I also don't want to go out. When I am in a little food/cook dilemma I defrost my tilapia and look for possibilities to spice them up.

Today, I'm sharing with you the easiest way to make a boring fish fun, spicy and just delicious. 

Here's what you need:

Tilapia fillets {one per person}
olive oil {one tsp per fillet}
fish rub of your choice {make your own or buy one, but use about 1/2 tsp per fillet}

Here's what you do:

thaw the fish
preheat oven to 400F
put the fillets in a non-stick pan or spray a pan
sprinkle oil on fish fillets and rub the oil in
then rub the fish rub on the fillets with your fingers {yes, get dirty}
put the fish in the oven
after about 25 minutes {or until the fish flakes easily or/and is browned} take it out
that's it.

So easy, so simple.
While the fish is in the oven you can make salad, make a rice dish, or like me, watch your favorite show on tv. ;) And oh my, I chose a really spicy rub and it was beyond delicious.
