I love springtime when all the green turns greener…I got a few containers of different herbs a couple of weeks ago. Now I am so happy for being able to just go to the patio and cut some fresh herbs as I need. Love the smell of fresh basil…so here is what I did with my first cut of basil. This is really easy, simple and fast…and amazingly healthy.


2 fillets of Tilapia
1 teaspoon of paprika
Salt to taste
1 tablespoons of fresh basil chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil


Coat a oven safe dish with olive oil, gently place the filet of Tilapia and sprinkle with salt, paprika and top with basil. Place in a oven for approximately 15-20 minutes at 375F. Serve hot.

Did you know that tilapia is the third most important fish in the aquafarming? Aquafarming is a name given to a process of fish culture under control conditions. Interestingly tilapias have low levels of mercury due to its quick growth, short life, and a vegetarian diet.
