Rosemary Tilapia with Lentils

Rosemary Tilapia with lentils. This is such an easy dish.! Green beans sauteed with red peppers add a great color pallet. The saying "you eat with your eyes first" is true. The Tilapia over the boiled Lentils looked so bla with no color. So I decided to have a side dish that was vibrant. Not only did it look good, it tasted good! I added a slice of Everything Bread brushed with olive oil and Steak seasonings. I baked this in the oven while the fish was also being baked at 350 F.

Tilapia fish is a fresh water fish that is high in protein and low in fat. It is the most consumed fresh water fish in the U.S. Tilapia is a mild fish that flakes great in texture if you do not over cook it. About 20 minutes is all you need.

Cover it in salt, butter, garlic,  fresh rosemary and a little lemon juice. That's it!

Here are the the things I used for the Tilapia and Lentils and green beans. I boiled the dried Lentils. You don't have to soak these before cooking, they cook fast by just boiling. Add salt and onion powder to them. My kids just knew that they were not going to like them, and was surprised by how much they loved them!  Look at those crazy red peppers. I found them in my garden....I couldn't believe the plants were still producing. Corwin was so cute when I was taking a picture of the ingredients, that I decided to use this "pic". My precious lil' man. This is a simple recipe, and I hope you enjoy it. Visit again, as I will be posting more Fall decorating ideas and recipes from friends.
