Lemon Garlic Swai or Tilapia Recipe

I am a huge fish and seafood lover and I love to find and create new recipes that doesn't include breading and frying. This recipe is perfect for any whitefish and the flavors are so delicious!

The prep is fast, and it's so easy to throw it in the oven and prepare the rest of your meal while it cooks. I also love that fish is so quick to defrost, so you can easily make it for a last minute meal. We loved this one, and hope you do too! Enjoy!!
