This recipe is easy to prepare, high in protein and very low in fat. It’s perfect with a side of your favourite vegetable and rice. I really enjoyed this as a quick lunch and I will definitely be making it on multiple occasions!

Serves  1:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tilapia filet
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp fresh lemon juice (or as much as you’d like)
  • 1 small clove of garlic crushed
  • salt/pepper
  • Fresh Parsley(could sub dried if you don’t have any but fresh makes it taste amazing!)

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 375*. Grab a small baking tray(optional) and a piece of tinfoil. Place your filet on the tinfoil and using a brush or your fingers, spread olive oil over both sides of the filet. Next, squeeze your lemon juice over the filet and season both sides with salt & pepper. Lastly sprinkle fresh parsley over top and wrap up the filet in the tinfoil. Place in the oven for 12-15min. (Until the fish is white and flaky). Serve!

Back From Vacation!

Hey guys! I got back from my vacation yesterday! I had such an awesome time. The weather was amazing and so was the food and the people! I just wanted to share with you a few pics of some of the delicious dinners I had!

This was a delicious cracked conch sandwich served with onion rings(my favourite!) and tartar sauce.

This was probably my favourite dinner of the vacation, fresh grouper in a tempura batter served with lime and fries/mango slaw on the side. Soo soo good! I felt bad I could only finish 1 piece of fish, if I had more room I would have finished it all haha.

Another night I had grouper yet again, (I really like grouper..). But this time it wasn’t battered, it was served in some really nice spicy sauce with cucumber yogurt sauce and fluffy rice!

We ended up getting dessert to share that night which included an interesting form of cheesecake and a warm apple tart with ice cream! It wasn’t exactly what we’d had in mind but it was still pretty good :).

Lastly I had this beautiful snapper with the best mashed potatoes ever! Topped with shrimp, lots of veggies and a great sauce. Yum!

Overall the food in turks was amazing and I would go back just for that itself! But my vacation really was amazing, I had so much fun and I loved just spending time alone with friends.

P.S I also bought this really cute mug for my tea, I love that it comes with a mini spoon!
