Quick Skillet Tilapia

My family loves to eat fish, even Little Buddy. His favorite sandwich besides peanut butter and jelly is a grouper sandwich that he just can’t get enough of during the summertime, especially.

At least once a week, I make some variety of fish for supper. Tilapia recipes have always been some of our favorites. Of them, this tilapia recipe has definitely been a go-to lately. It’s ready in no time flat and is perfect for those busy weeknights when we’re rushing from one thing to another. I dare say that I’ve found it to be quicker than a drive thru line during the week.

I love to serve this tilapia recipe over a bed of succotash if I have some left over from a night before or if I have a little bit more time to prepare supper. They are absolutely perfect together.

Here’s how I make this Skillet Tilapia Recipe. I think you’ll love it!
