baked-cajun-tilapia 007

 Makes 2 servings

16 oz fresh or frozen Tilapia (This will be about 7 oz cooked per serving)
1 red bell pepper
2 tsp olive oil
4 cups of washed shredded lettuce
2 Tbsp Newman’s lite Italian Dressing

Cajun Seasoning for the Tilapia:

1/2 tsp lite salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
dash of cayenne
1/4 tsp ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Thaw tilapia if frozen. Place tilapia on a foil covered baking sheet. Remove stem and seeds from the bell pepper and slice. Lay the slices on the baking sheet next to the tilapia. Spray or brush the olive oil over the tilapia and the peppers.

Mix all the cajun seasonings (salt, oregano, paprika, cayenne and black pepper) together well in a bowl or spice grinder. Sprinkle cajun seasoning evenly over the tilapia. Place the tilapia and peppers in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes and is thoroughly cooked.

Place 2 cups of lettuce on 2 plates and drizzle 1 Tbsp of dressing over each salad. Serve along side the fish and peppers.

Hope you enjoy!
