51 Weeks of Recipes: Week 1

My new year's resolution this year is to try one new recipe a week. Now, I didn't really follow through with this last week, so I am rededicating myself to this resolution starting today (hence the "51 Weeks" rather than 52!).
The new recipe I tried this week was grilled tilapia. Now, I am fairly new to this whole "eating fish" thing but tilapia is a pretty non-fishy fish so it was a safe choice.
This recipe was extremely simple...all I had to do was sprinkle some lemon pepper on the fish fillets, toss them on my foil-covered grill, and cook for 5 minutes. It was quick and simple, my first two requirements for any recipe! I also cooked seasoned potatoes to go with the fish.
The fish was moist and flaky, but didn't have as much flavor as TJ and I would have liked. Next time I will take my mom's suggestion and marinate the fillets in Italian dressing. I think I will continue to experiment with fish recipes this year!
