Lemon Pepper Tilapia Over Parmesan Rice

Since we are now in the season of Lent, I figured it would be the perfect time to publish a quick and easy family recipe, ideal for Friday night dinner. This recipe is a tasty and well balanced alternative to pizza and pasta, common meat-free options that get old FAST!

Now for those seafood averse out there, this recipe is for you too! And you will likely even be able to serve this to your picky little eaters at home. I am not typically a big seafood eater myself, but this Tilapia dish is so buttery and light that it will truly be enjoyed by the entire family.

The recipe below is intended for 4 servings. To prepare dinner for two, simply cut the listed ingredients in half. ENJOY!




*This will yield far more seasoning than you will need for the above mentioned recipe. Store seasoning in dry, air tight jar or container for future use! 

  • The zest from 4-6 organic lemons (or ½ cup pre-dried lemon zest)
  • 6 Tablespoons ground black pepper (or whole peppercorns if you are using fresh lemon)
  • 5 Tablespoons Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt
2. Put into the oven on the lowest setting and leave until completely dried (approx. 60 min)
3. When completely dried, mix lemon zest with the peppercorns and salt in a food processor until well mixed

*If making with pre-dried lemon peel, just mix all ingredients in a food processor until blended
