Tilapia is probably the most popular farm raised fish sold in grocery stores to be popular on the weeknight dinner table. It’s a versatile fish, easy to prepare without a strong ‘fishy’ flavor. We like it because it’s affordable and the fillets are perfect for weeknight meals.
While you can prepare Tilapia a plethora of different ways, our Lemon Pepper Baked version is Low Carb. It’s stock value for me goes up for being a delicious and desirable low carb entree.

This is a Two Ingredient Entree!
We enjoy ours heavy on the Lemon Pepper which is why we use 1 Tablespoon per piece of fish. That is divided between the front and back of each piece of fish. Feel free to use less. We won’t be offended.
While the Tilapia is low carb, the side dishes are your choice. See our list of ideas above. There will be a few carbs in our side dishes. Ahem! Well maybe at least one, the Homemade Mashed Potatoes have more than a few carbs so just skip dessert when you enjoy those!
