Last week was a loooong, busy week. It was my first full week (5 days) of work since before Christmas. I know, I know…stop complaining Jaida. I’m just sayin…that extra day makes a difference. I also kicked off my new year’s resolution to go to the gym, so that takes away more than an hour from my evenings, which aren’t that long as it is, so quick-fix dinners are definitely welcome now. And this fish dinner is one of those. To extra healthify, you can sub the mayo with a fat-free variety of mayo or miracle whip. I love horseradish, so I added a little extra and it was heavenly! Add this to your busy weeknight menu and you won’t be disappointed!

Source: Robin Miller
- Cooking spray
- 1 lemon
- 4 (6-ounce) Tilapia fillets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄3 cup light mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish, or more to taste
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Preheat the broiler. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Finely grate 1 teaspoon of zest from the lemon and set aside. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over both sides of the fish. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper, to taste, and the garlic powder.
Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet and broil until fork-tender, about 3 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest, horseradish, chives, and parsley. Serve the fish with the mayonnaise mixture spooned over the top.
