This Quick Pan-Fried Tilapia is super flavorful and so easy to put together for dinner on busy weeknights, or to add to your weekly meal prep. This recipe is keto-friendly!I feel as though I’ve been in a bit of a cooking slump lately. My family has all been so busy with their own things that we don’t get to sit down for dinner together as much as before. With all of the different schedules and different degrees of “busy” for each family member, sometimes it can be difficult to come up with a meal plan for the week.
However, there’s always one of my “old faithful” recipes that I make when it appears everyone will be available to eat together. I make this super easy and quick pan-fried tilapia recipe that I came up with a few years ago. It’s super simple to make, I just steam some rice and add my favorite vegetable and dinner is served in less than 30 minutes!
