Baked Tilapia with Mustard Lemon & Horseradish Sauce

This is really a very easy and delicious way to serve up dinner. We try to eat fish often, ideally two times  a week, and the same old recipes can get boring real fast. I served this with some roasted okra and Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains Blend.

The flavors in this are subtle so don’t be afraid of the horseradish or the mustard. In fact, I might even recommending amping up the measurements just a tad for a bolder flavor. However, made according to the recipe it was just right for Number Two’s more sensitive palate, and all the boys ate it up quick.
