This Quick and Zesty Lemon Garlic Tilapia recipe is adapted from one by Sam's Club. It takes 10 minutes to prepare and, while it bakes for 8 minutes, the rest of the meal comes together, making the total time spent in the kitchen about half an hour. Tilapia, native to Africa, are now commercially farmed around the world, making them extremely affordable, and the third most-popular cultivated fish. The lowfat flesh is firm, white, sweet and fine-textured, and suitable for baking, broiling, steaming and stove-top grilling, but not so much on outdoor grills.
