Quick and Easy Fish

There are those nights when you want a quick, basic meal. Fish is the best thing for us that fits this type of evening. Of course, fish can be fancy or simple, however, this fish is simple and delicious. I started with trout (which has an awesome flavor) with a basic lemon pepper and Garlic Gold olive oil brushed on top. Baked in the oven... Simple and quick as that. For the side we prepared risotto alongside sauteed zucchini with diced tomatoes. Everything was ready in less than 20 minutes. What a great and healthy meal.

Quick and Easy Fish

2 pieces of thin fish, 6-8 ounces pre cooked (I used Trout in this picture, tilapia would also work)
Penzey's Lemon Pepper Seasoning sprinkled on top
Garlic Gold Olive Oil, brushed on top

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place fish on baking sheet (skin side down if there is a skin on your fish). Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 7-10 minutes, until fish is flaky but not dry. Lesson in fish is to not overcook it!!!

Serve this meal with a great bottle of wine and enjoy the ease of cooking when you are cramped for time
