This baked tilapia is delicious, and perfect for a healthy diet. My kids love tilapia because it doesn’t have a fishy smell.


Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4


  • 3-4 tilapia fillets
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 tsp. lemon pepper
  • Salt/ pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon & thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven 425 degrees F
  • Mix all spices & lemon zest with olive oil. It will be like a thick paste.
  • Pat fish dry. Rub spice mixture on all the fillets.
  • Place 2 lemon slices on each fillet (optional you can just squeeze the lemon juice but I like the roasted lemon)
  • Place fish on foiled or sprayed baking sheet . Bake for 25 min or until fish flakes with fork. My fillets were pretty thick. If you are using the thin fillets baking time will be less.
  • Enjoy!
