Lemon-Parsley Tilapia

I like to include seafood in our weekly dinner rotation but don't want to bother with anything complicated (and it had better taste good or the family will riot). This herbed fish does the trick. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    Good Flavor! 1 teaspoon dried parsley was used for the fresh parsley. Didn't have lemon to zest but still very tasty.

    Simple and full of lemony, garlicky flavor. Substituted 1 Tbs of lightly dried parsley that I had on hand for the fresh parsley with no issues. Looking forward to eating this dish again.
