Everyone knows we all need to add more fish to our diets, so here's a quick two-person recipe.

The tilapia is a very mild-flavored fish so takes well to spices and sauces. This particular brand, Ocean Chef, has a very low sodium (40mg) content compared to other brands.

My fiance has a sodium-restricted diet and tilapia is one of the few fishes she will eat.
