Tilapia with Basil and Garlic

So I am trying to add a bit more fish into my diet, but always am a bit cautious since it is a bit hard to get "fresh" fish in the Midwest. Tonight I am going to have tilapia with basil and garlic. It is really simple and I will make a side of brown rice and baked apples.

Tilapia with Basil and Garlic

4 tilapia pieces rinsed and patted dry.
1-2 TBs olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 lemon juiced
1-2 Tbs minced fresh basil (less if you used dried)

Turn oven to 375 deg F.  Place the tilapia in a foil lined dish. Drizzle with olive oil, top with garlic, lemon juice and basil. If using fresh basil, you can reserve some to top prior to serving.  Bake fish for aprox 30 min. If you prefer something a little more spicy add a little red pepper or back pepper. The basil can be changed out for parsley or other favorite herb.
