“It’s just another meatless Monday, I wish it was Sunday ’cause that’s my fun day”. Isn’t that how the song goes? Ha. No, but really #meatlessmonday has this negative connotation of being like punishment. Because Monday’s are perceived as horrible and then add meatless to the torture. But it doesn’t have to be like that, Monday’s can be your fun day too. We can look forward to our meatless dinners when they are as fun and delicious as this Baked Buttery Lemon Pepper Tilapia.

I mean look at it. How happy are those lemon slices smiling up at you atop a perfectly browned piece of tilapia swimming in a buttery lemon pepper sauce!?

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall this dish just works. It warms the tummy in the winter, but it has a light, fresh flavor that would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Hot Summer Day… does that not sound A-Ma-Zing right now!? Excuse me while I go curl up by the fire, eat a plate full of this buttery lemon pepper goodness and transport myself to a tropical paradise.
