Lemon Tilapia Fish with Organic Quinoa

2 Tilapia Fish Fillets
2 Lemons
2 Teaspoons of Oil
2 Garlic cloves
1 Teaspoon of Basil
1 Teaspoon of Lemon Pepper seasoning
Dash of Salt
1/4 Cup of Water
1 cup of Organic Quinoa (available at your local health food store or Trader Joes)
2 cups of Water
1 Chicken Bullion Cube
1 1/2 cups of Broccoli
1/2 cup of corn

To start off you'll want to make the marinade for the fish. Juice one lemon and place in a bowl with the ź cup of water and oil. Mince the garlic and add to the liquid ingredients, also add the basil, lemon pepper seasoning and the salt. Mix the ingredients thoroughly with a fork. Once the marinade is mixed, cover fish
and allow to marinade for at least 2 hours. For best results marinade over night.

After the fish has marinated, heat up a skillet on medium heat with about a 1/16 cup of butter (just enough to coat the pan). Once the pan is heated up enough add the fish and marinade and allow to cook evenly on both sides (5 mins each side). Turn heat down to low and let fish simmer for another 5 minutes to allow more marinade to soak in.

While the fish is cooking heat up the 2 cups of water to boiling and add the quinoa and chicken bullion cube. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. You can also steam the broccoli and heat up the corn at this time. Now that everything is done sit down and enjoy your meal.
