If you noticed the last two weeks I’ve been going for quick dishes – like this salad and these wraps. I’ve realized with the kids running around during dinner time I cannot have a fussy meal. You know those that I’m talking about? The ones with 80 ingredients and way too many steps. Enter this Parmesan Herb Tilapia.

Parmesan Herb Tilapia with Southern Breeze Cold Brew

A few months ago a friend asked for a low carb meal. After I made it I realized why not enjoy it with a glass of Southern Breeze Cold Brew Tea?! It’s calorie free and guilt free. I mean I don’t think I’ve given you a reason yet why you shouldn’t try these two. And right now you can get your first online order shipped for free.

The available flavors are original, half and half (which I recommend with this recipe), raspberry and peach. All of the zero calorie products (cold brew and family size tea bags) are available at Southern Breeze.

Yall know that I go through these food phases – there was my BBQ chicken one, my slider phase, and my pot pie one. And now I’m on a Parmesan Herb kick. It first started with this dressing and followed by this Parmesan Herb Tilapia.

I mean how easy can I make it for you? Put olive oil and lemon juice in one dish and grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh herbs in the other. Then you dredge each filet in olive oil, then in Parmesan Herb mix, place on a baking sheet and your dinner is done in under 15 minutes. Like I said easy peasy.

And with the weather warming up I don’t want to be inside the whole time. These kiddos need some fresh air. Let’s be honest so does Mama. My guess is you probably do too.

So if you need one more reason to enjoy a refreshing glass of Southern Breeze Sweet Tea they are doing a Sweet Spring Picnic Basket Giveaway. The basket includes a picnic blanket, table cloth, mason jars, and a full supply of the cold brew tea.
