Pan Fried Lemon Tilapia-so easy and so delicious, perfect for a busy weeknight dinner!! www.tasteofdivine.com

Just so you have an idea about my cooking ability when I first got married, the first book my hubby bought me early in our relationship was called “How to Boil Water“, and let me tell you-it was a real page turner!

Really, I didn’t know the first think about cooking back then. I wanted to make him dinner one night so I went to my mom for help. She gave me this simple fool-proof recipe that is delicious and easy.

So give this recipe a go on a night when you don’t have much time to cook.  It will be worth it.
