Happy Cyber Monday, readers!

I’m sure everyone’s busy getting all of their holiday shopping taken care of today, so I wanted to feature a recipe that was absolutely mouth-watering and easy to fix up for supper tonight.

Today, I’m bringing you one of Paula Deen‘s top recipes that got 5 stars on Food Network’s website. It honestly amazes me that with all of the totally healthy recipes that I don’t even have to change at all that the Food Network doesn’t have their own section of paleo recipes. Maybe I should suggest it to them!

Paula Deen’s Baked Tilapia with Tomato and Basil


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 (8-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. Sprinkle the fish evenly with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the tilapia in a baking dish and sprinkle evenly with basil, oregano, onion powder and garlic.
  5. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
  6. Arrange the tomato slices evenly over the fish, and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  7. Bake until fish flakes easily with fork, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  8. Squeeze the lemon juice over fish and serve immediately.
  9. Enjoy! šŸ™‚
