This super easy Tilapia and Roasted Red Pepper Skillet is frequently featured in my dinner rotation!

With fresh tilapia from Heinen’s Seafood Department, Heinen’s roasted red peppers and a light cream sauce, this dinner is easy, colorful, nutritious and delicious. It’s also a great option when meal prepping lunches or dinners.

Made in one pan and on the table in under 30 minutes, I recommend serving this dish on its own, with roasted veggies or over rice.
