Shrimp Scampi and Tilapia

I LOVE to cook. I married a southern man and he is used to having home cooked meals every night....Thanks mother-in-law! ;-). He likes that his wife cooks and I love to cook so......Perfect Match.

Tonight I made Shrimp Scampi and Tilapia. It was super easy and took me no more than 20 minutes. I got the recipe for the shrimp scampi from pinterest and the tilapia is just something that I easily make with different seasonings. I added some pasta and Voila! Dinner is served.

Baked Tilapia

4 fresh tilapia fillets
1 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
1 tbsp. Herbs de Provence
2 tbsp. olive oil (I used Gazebo Room Greek Dressing instead)

Gazebo Room Greek Dressing
If you have never heard of this dressing.....GET IT NOW! It is wonderful and everyone I introduce it to falls in love! Click on the link and it will take you to the website.....turn the volume up 'cause there's a jingle to go along with the dressing!  I couldn't make this stuff up.

Preheat oven to 350. Wash and pat dry tilapia with paper towel. Place in baking dish. In a small bowl combine seasonings and pour over tilapia. Place in oven, uncovered, and bake for 20-30 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.

 Shrimp Scampi:

Melt a stick of butter in the pan. Slice one lemon and layer it on top of the butter. Put down 1 lb. fresh shrimp, then sprinkle one pack of dried Italian seasoning. Put in the oven and bake at 350 for 15 min. Best Shrimp you will EVER taste:)

I boiled some spaghetti noodles and added it to the pan of shrimp once they came out of the oven. I mixed it around and took out the lemons. They can sometimes become overbearing in food. I topped it off with some tomato basal feta cheese on my plate only.

This was soooooo yummy! Definitely not something for the dieters out there but it's ok to splurge every now and then. Everything in moderation right? Tell that to the Tastykake I ate today.
