Recipe: Cilantro Lime Tilapia

Dinner Recipes, Seafood Recipes



With my kids growing up and moving in so many different directions these days, dinner often ends up just being me and my husband.  Sometimes, I miss the craziness of a full house, but I do love the simplicity of preparing a meal for two.  Much easier than cooking for a family of five!  My husband and I made this cilantro lime tilapia the other night, and fell in love with it!  It was so simple to prepare, but tasted like a gourmet meal.  We will be sure to keep this one on our radar for future dinners for two.
