Food For Taut - Baked Tilapia & Turnip Greens

(Recipe of Baked Tilapia & Side of Turnip Greens)

Heyo!! Back with another recipe in the 'Food For Taut' Segment.

We are making Baked Tilapia & a side of Turnip Greens. The recipe is very simple and quick to make.
Tilapia is a very healthy option for dinner. Not only is it high in protein but also is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which provides essential nutrients for our health. Most importantly, at least for me, it tastes simply delicious!

Here is the recipe for Baked Tilapia. It requires very basic ingredients which you can easily find in your kitchen.
I served it with a simple side of turnip greens ( Recipe courtesy of Mr. Varun Govande ) which made it a wholesome meal.

  4. Place the fish fillets on the baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes.There is no need to flip the fish.
Turnip Greens
  1. Wash the turnip greens and chop them roughly.
