Lemon Pepper Tilapia
Need a healthy but simple go-to recipe?
I don’t often use fish in my kitchen. There’s no particular reason…I just end up going for chicken/turkey, beef and pork. But every now and again, a simple shrimp/tilapia/salmon recipe is just what sounds good.
Many postop bariatric surgery patients love fish, because it’s soft, flakey and goes down easily. While I have no problem with having lots of fish in your diet, be sure you aren’t avoiding more dense meats (chicken, beef, pork) because they cause you pain…that would be a good indicator that your bites are too big.
Fish is wonderful in a Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass or Gastric Lapband® diet…although be sure to incorporate lots of different protein sources for variety and because fish won’t stay with you as long as other more dense meats.
Enjoy this very simple tilapia recipe! I know it will be a “go-to” in my kitchen!
