Low Fat Baked Greek Tilapia

Low Fat Baked Greek Tilapia

Fiona Haynes
Naturally low fat, tilapia is a wonderfully mild, meaty, inexpensive fish that lends itself to all kinds of flavors. Serve this Greek-style dish with steamed vegetables and either couscous or rice--whole grain, of course.

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes


  • 4 Tilapia fillets
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 11-inch by 7-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, paprika and ground pepper. Lay Tilapia fillets in a single layer in the baking dish. Drizzle oil, lemon and herb mixture over the fish. Cover with foil and bake for 15-18 minutes.

Serve with steamed vegetables and whole grain couscous or rice.

Fast, easy and healthy, Member kristiekan

I did not have tilapia on had so I substitued orange roughy. The fish was delicious - moist and flavorful. Served it with steamed asparagus and a marinated cucumber/onion salad. Incredibly low fat, fast and healthy.
