Baked Lemon-Pepper Tilapia with Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Mmmm...tilapia. I created this recipe last night. Quick and easy. We quite enjoyed this dinner and the beautiful weather as we relaxed outside on our deck (it was around 80 degrees in PA yesterday!) Serve this fish with Garlic Parmesan Orzo...it's realllllly good (see recipe at the bottom of this post).

4 tilapia fillets (4 oz. each)
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic salt or powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil.

Rinse tilapia fillets under cool water and gently pat dry with paper towels.

Place fillets in baking dish. Drizzle melted butter and lemon juice over fillets. Sprinkle with the lemon-pepper seasoning and garlic salt.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the fish is white and flakes when pulled apart with a fork.

Serve with lemon wedges.
